Massaya is run by brothers Sami and Ramzi Ghosn in partnership with Frédéric and Daniel Brunier from Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe and Dominique Hebrard, formerly from Château Cheval Blanc.

Presented in a striking blue bottle, this Arak is made in the Beqaa Valley from triple distilled Obeidi grapes. During the third distillation, green organic aniseed is added from the village of Hineh on the Syrian slopes of Mount Hermon. One year ageing in traditional clay amphorae and then the spirit is ready to be bottled. Serve over ice and it turns a milky white colour and is wonderfully pure. Very special indeed.
