There is an article in Lebanese Daily Star about arak:

http://www.dailystar.com.lb/article.asp?ed...rticle_id=82828

The book can be found in Amazon (not published yet at the time of this writing):

I ordered two bottles, Ksarak and Kefraya arak, and got this information from the merchant.

The Ksarak is the best I've tasted.

Probably the extended two year aging in those clay jars, instead of the usual six months.

I couldn't if the website with shop loaded without any oddities. Maybe you have copied it and can post it?

The copy I received as an attachment is in PDF. I put it on my absinthe page (under construction).

Thanks, excellent reading and a toast to an even brighter future for Arak abs-cheers.gif

Unfortunately, in Poland, there is only one(before war there were several brands wink.gif, no one knows here and there is it good or bad and its price has just doubled drastically. O tempora, o mores!

Good thing it isn't absinthe or they wouldn't be able to age it more than six weeks.
absinthist
Or six days as it might be the case blink.gif . At least Lebanese know the tradition, stick to the tradition and never betray it. Europeans, learn!
Absomphe
Yes, I'd love to see some European buck the econmic considerations, and long-age a batch of absinthe in some clay jars. wink.gif
