Tekirdag Gold Raki 0,7l
Terkirdag Gold Raki is Tekirdag's luxury raki, so to speak, made from pure grape alcohol and aniseed. It was the first raki to be aged in oak barrels and is the first choice for gourmet drinkers in his homeland.
Tekirdag is a village in Thrace on the Sea of Marmara, and very well known as a traditional wine-growing region. Raki is usually drunk as an aperitif mixed with water over ice. When mixed with water, the insoluble oils of the anise form tiny droplets that cause the milky cloudiness. Because of this effect, the Turks also refer to raki as lion's milk ("aslan sütü").
The special taste
The special taste of Tekirdag Raki is attributed to the water used in the production. The water comes from an artesian well in Tekirdag in the Corlu district. With an artesian well, the water comes out naturally at one point and therefore does not have to be pumped out.
Furthermore, the city and its surroundings are known for the excellent grapes that grow there, the raw material for raki. All these requirements together create an excellent and popular table companion in the Tekirdag gold raki.
