Massaya is a partnership between two pairs of brothers: Ramzi and Sami Ghosn from Lebanon and Daniel and Frédéric Brunier from France, and Dominique Hébrard (previously of Château Cheval Blanc). Having survived the war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006, Massaya celebrated their 10th anniversary amidst more fighting in 2008.
Arak is from the anise spirit family which includes absinthe, pastis and ouzo, yet is a more refined version of the spirit. Massaya Arak is in a distinctive blue bottle, as Massaya is the name given to the dark blue mediterranean twilight. Triple distilled, using the native grape varieties, Merweh and Obeideh, it has a refreshing aniseed quality that makes it perfect for pairing with food. With all the different flavours of mezze, the Lebanese find Arak works perfectly with every dish, especially olives, goats' cheese and minced lamb. Or try substituting it for another spirit in a cocktail - we think it works particularly well in a Bloody Mary!
