About the production of this anise schnapps

Yes, this arak is made only from the best grapes as well. So from Obeidy to be exact. However, the production is rather aimed at making an honest, simple but still very good liquor. Therefore, the traditional method of a triple distillation is also used here. Of course, this also means, that the alcohol is stored for one year in clay jugs. Correspondingly this basically refines and purifies the alcohol from harmful substances such as the ethanol, that can be harmful when drinking too much
