Tasting Notes

3,000 years ago, our ancestors learned to distill wine to make Arak, Lebanon’s national drink. Arak is an aniseed based Eau De Vie which turns white when mixed with water. Indeed, it is commonly referred to as the Lion’s Milk. Karam XO, is proudly triple distilled with Pure Jezzine Spring Water from Lebanese, using the finest aniseed in the world and white grapes only. The renowned Pure Jezzine Spring Water when used in the distill gives the Arak a highly mineral taste on the palette. XO is pure, incredibly smooth and arguably one of the best Araks in Lebanon.
