Arak Touma Extra Muatag (0.7L) is a great anise schnapps from Lebanon. Therefore, the Lebanese often call it the king of arak. And this is exactly how Arak Touma Extra Muatag  from Chateau Saint Thomas tastes.

In fact, this winery is one of the oldest distilleries in Lebanon. Moreover, Chateau St.Thomas has been distilling the world-famous Arak Touma Extra Muatag since 1888.

What are the aromas of Arak Touma Extra Muatag?

First, the bouquet develops the usual nuance of licorice. Generally, a really typical aroma when it comes to Lebanese arak. In addition to that, a hint of fennel and herbs emerge. But most importantly, this arak is a little more intense than the others. But on the other hand, it is also very accessible.

Where do the grapes for this anise brandy come from?

First of all, the vines for this aniseed brandy also grow at an altitude of 1000 meters. Thus, the altitude and therefore weather has an excellent effect on the grapes. Especially since the cold at night and the heat during the days give the grape structure and density. To be precise, it is the grape variety called Obeidi, which is predefined for such licorice. A really robust but also acidic grape that makes just the right balance.

Continuing, the soil of the Bekaa Valley consists of lime and clay. And the snowmelt irrigates the vineyards in spring and summer. A perfect alliance between land and weather. Of course, ideal for the cultivation of Lebanese wines as well.

About the production of this arak

This Lebanese arak is distilled three times. During the last distillation, the distillery adds high quality anise. This is the reason why the arak becomes milky when mixed with for example water. Further, the anise seeds also give the brandy the traditional aroma of licorice. 

Last but not least, this Lebanese arak is aged for five years in handmade clay jugs. Of course, mainly to remove the pollutants. However, this also gives it a certain smoothness and elegance.
