A fantastic Turkish Raki from Tekirdag distillery, forming part of their Thracian Series (Thracia or Thrace is an area in the southeastern Balkans, now part of Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania).
The spirit is made using Papazkarasi (a Turkish grape which translates as “Black Priest”) and Semillon grapes, and distilled in traditional copper stills with sumac and aniseed.
The result is a flavoursome, fruity spirit with notes of liquorice, spice, fennel, aniseed, and sweet grapes.
This Raki is bottled at 45% ABV, for extra intensity and warmth. Perfect after a large Turkish meal.
