Arak Brun Classic , thus, went on to become the most famous brandy from the Bekaa.

What does Arak Brun Classic taste like?

Firstly, when you take a closer look, especially this Lebanese anise schnapps is very smooth. Moreover, it reveals elegance despite its power and fullness. In addition, there is a harmonious balance between the aromas and the freshness. Therefore it also emerges and gifts the consumer with a certain liveliness and freshness. Hence, the Arak Brun Classic is actually an incredible friend of poetic and also philosophical evenings. Of course mainly because it refreshes the participants and keeps the social round awake. But now back to the taste. Again, the aroma of licorice and herbs dominates. The nose develops above all a hint of fresh fennel. Continuing, however, the palate also reflects all the aromas of the bouquet and is thus really good in harmony with the nose.

This full-bodied arak from Lebanon is a truly flexible drinking companion. Thus it really goes well with spicy rice dishes as well as with cold and fresh appetizers such as carpaccio or salad.

About the production of this aniseed brandy.

The alcohol of this brandy is obtained from the native Obeidi grape. A very strong and acidic grape variety, which today is also used for the production of Lebanese wines. Of course, primarily in order to create the structure. Furthermore, the grapes are then fermented in normal stainless steel tanks. Accordingly, Domaine des Tourelles distills the resulting alcohol then three more three more times. And similar to the production of almost all other varieties, high-quality aniseed is being added during the last distillation. Furthermore, Domaine des Tourelles has been growing its own anise seeds for several years now. Doing this, of course, will be another method to improve the structure of their own arak. 

And last but not least, the Arak Brun Classic is then ages for one year in clay jars made in Zahle. This traditional methodmakes the arak smooth and gentle. In addition, the distillery thus also removes almost all pollutants such as ethanol.
