Roots Rakomelo

Roots Rakomelo

ABV: 24%
Pack Size: 6 x 70cl
Country of Origin: Greece


The history of Rakomelo goes back to the 12th century, when the Peloponnese peninsula was under Frankish occupation. Though, others place its story on the island of Crete and the Cyclades islands. No matter what the real story is, Rakomelo blends natural honey in perfect harmony with the strong raki spirit, while cinnamon and clove buds add the finishing touch to an idiosyncratic and remarkable flavour.

Tasting Notes:

Bright, jazzy and warm gold-to-yellow hue. The Aroma is strong and flamboyant, fruity and slightly nutty smell with a noticeable spirity entourage. The flavour is naturally sweet and has a honey, and spirited taste. Subtle presence of spices with a very rich and delicate mouthfeel. Enjoy as a warm cosy drink for a cold winter day, or as a chilled summer frenzy shot. Or even better as an injection of honey and raki into modern mixology cocktails.
