The story of Tekirdag Rakisi begins with the grape and aniseed that is used in its production arriving at the distillery. After the fresh grapes and raisins are cut into pieces in the cutting machines they are placed in tanks with water, and sira, the grape juice, is prepared. Pure yeast is added to the sira placed in tanks to start alcoholic fermentation. This process produces the ‘suma', which carries the unique aroma of grapes which have been distilled until the alcohol content is 94,5 %. The mixture is then placed in traditional five thousand litre copper alembics and aniseed with high essential oil content is added, the quantity of which is determined by the oil content. The next stage is the isolation of the mid-product, which has the ideal softness and drinking characteristics. The raki experts of Mey remove the head and tail product at just the right levels, and, following a second distillation, place the mid-product in oak barrels to rest for a period that ranges from 20 days to 3-4 months. Filtered for one last time before being bottled, the Tekirdag Rakisi is now ready to set out for its esteemed place on raki tables. Produced from grape based distillate (suma) and available in 70 cl bottles at the Tekirdag Distillery with 45%abv. Suggestion for drinking: It may be drank straight up or with 1/3 added water or mineral water, yet always cold (8-10°C). Raki may be taken as an aperitif; the Turkish way of drinking raki would be at a ‘çilingir' table, with the distinctive cold and hot meze.

You may drink Yeni Raki by adding water or mineral water or straight. Yeni Raki should be served chilled or with ice cubes. When mixed with water clear liquid takes on it's famous white color. It is believed that raki produced in Anatolia has a history of at least 300 years. It is said that the addition of aniseed gave raki its character as a Turkish drink. In various sources from ancient times aniseed is defined as a herb that helps breathing and has warming, pain relieving, healing effects. The aniseed that gives raki its special scent is not discernable in the raki since it dissolves completely, but when water is added to raki, it reveals itself by whitening the liquid. It is named "Lion's Milk" also.
