Tekirdag Raki 700ml
Raki is an unsweetened, anise-flavored alcoholic drink that is popular in Turkey and in the Balkan countries as an apéritif. It is often served with seafood or meze. It is similar to several other alcoholic beverages available around the Mediterranean and the Middle East, e.g. pastis, ouzo, sambuca, arak, and aguardiente. It is considered as the national alcoholic beverage of Turkey It is traditionally consumed either straight (sek, from the French "sec" meaning neat or dry), with chilled water on the side or partly mixed with chilled water, according to personal preference. Ice cubes are sometimes added. Dilution with water causes raki to turn a milky-white color. There are two methods of Turkish raki production. One method uses raisins and other grapes. Yeni Raki is produced from raisins and Tekirdag Rakisi is produced from grapes. Fresh grape raki is like ouzo but has a higher alcohol content.
