El Massaya Arak is an exceptional Lebanese spirit, produced with the finest ingredients using traditional, labor-intensive methods. Indigenous Obeidi grapes are fermented for about two weeks, then double distilled in traditional Moorish lid copper stills over vinewood embers. On the third distillation, the spirit is macerated with organic green aniseed from the Syrian slopes of Mount Hermon, which imparts a distinctive aroma and flavor. Finally, the spirit is aged in traditional clay amphorae for two years, lending a subtle color and a notable maturity. Serve El Massaya Arak with two parts cold water.
