What are the key ingredients in Yeni Raki?

Contents of Yeni Rakı are as follows:  *Water *Suma distilled from grapes and raisins *Agricultural Ethyl Alcohol *Aniseed *Refined White Sugar

Why does the color of Yeni Raki change?

The reason lying behind change of the color is the balance of solubility level of the product contents. Due to some alcohol-soluble (not water-soluble) contents derived from aniseed, rakı becomes opaque when water is added.

Can you freeze Yeni Raki?

The alcohol-water mix, containing 45% alcohol by volume, freezes at about -30 C°. If you keep Yeni Rakı at around such temperature degrees, you can observe freezing.  When you keep Yeni Rakı at or below 4 C°, you can see crystallization, which is not a quality error, and when you keep it again at room temperature, it becomes normal. However, preservation of Yeni Rakı under these circumstances for a long period of time and exposure of it to different temperatures, its quality balance may be impaired.

What is the difference between Yeni Raki and other aniseed-based drinks?

Rakı is fundamentally different than other aniseed-based alcoholic beverages. We have a passion for quality, which brings along utilization of an artisanal & time-intensive production process.

The difference of Rakı is that it is 100% pure aniseed spirit. It is produced through a double-distillation process of grapes and aniseed (native to Turkey) only, therefore the anise flavor comes from distillation of aniseed itself, not anise extract or other subsequently-added herbs as in other aniseed spirits. While other seeds can be used in Ouzo, pimpinella anisum is a must-use content in Rakı production. Pimpinella anisum seeds are added to the alembic in order to create a unique flavor. Any other seeds than pimpinella anisum seeds may not be used in Rakı production. That makes Rakı %100 pure aniseed. Additionally; both fresh grapes and raisins can be used in rakı production.  All aromatic contents are derived from the grape alcohol.
