Labor Day is Arak Day at Faqra

Massya Faqra is opening a new season of fine food, wine and arak to celebrate Labor Day.

The start of May marks the return of the popular Faqra Sunday brunch and buffet and on Labor Day the menu has extra features that will emphasise Lebanon’s contribution to world cuisine. The menu has also been created to complement arak, our nation’s traditional spirit. Lebanese cuisine and the mystical cloudy arak work together to make a memorable meal.

We reveal the secrets of Lebanon’s special spirit!

Arak has a special place in the Massaya story because it was our first bottling at Tanail even before we began wine production 20 years ago. We want to share that story with you, so we are making Labor Day an arak day at Faqra. We will be demonstrating the triple distillation process that turns obeidi grapes into cool clear spirit.  and as a bonus And guess what? You will be able to sample arak at its full cask strength.

You’ll learn a lot about arak from our demonstration and get to enjoy Massaya’s home-made arak cocktails!
