Tekirdag Rakisi is a premium Raki made entirely from fresh, whole grapes. Most Raki is twice distilled from grape pomace (similar to Grappa) and flavored with aniseed. Raki is the national spirit of Turkey having its roots in the Ottoman Empire. Raki is traditionally paired with mezze, the hot and cold appetizers served before a meal or as the main meal itself. Raki is part of a family of anise flavored spirits like Ouzo, Pastis, and Sambuca while it is usually much drier than its siblings.
How to Enjoy
Serve chilled or over ice (when served on ice the clear liquid will turn milky white) with food or as an aperitif.
