Made by Chateau Musar, one of, if not the most famous wineries in Lebanon. The L'Arack de Musar is made by taking the juice from the first pressing of grapes which, once fermented, is then distilled to produce grape alcohol. Musar than distill the alcohol a further 3 times with the addition of anis seeds during the 4th distillation. It is then aged for one year in terracotta amphora's before bottling.
The Arack pours clear and turns cloudy with the addition of water. Soft aniseed aromas with a background of savoury notes. At 53% this is surprisingly smooth where the aniseed flavours are carried on with a long slightly sweet finish. Best served either over ice or with a dash of iced water.
