Lebanese Luxury Arak Brand

Business Opportunity

Arak Overview

During the 13th century, the renowned alchemist Jaber Ibn Hayyan pioneered the development of the alembic, a device utilized in the process of distillation. Over time, this method was further refined by Christian and Jewish communities in the Middle East, resulting in the creation of Arak, a grape-based spirit infused with the distinct flavor of aniseed.

In Lebanon, traditional cuisine holds a significant cultural significance, and it is not uncommon for meals to be accompanied by a glass of Arak. This spirit, which is considered the country’s national drink, is deeply intertwined with the nation’s culinary heritage and serves as an iconic representation of Lebanese identity.

Arak is not only a staple drink in Lebanese culture but also in several other cultures such as Palestinian, Jordanian, Syrian, Iraqi, Turkish (Raki), Greek (Ouzo), and Armenian (Oghi).

The Story Behind Blanka

It all started with a passion for Arak, a spirit steeped in Middle Eastern tradition. Over 50 years ago, Halim Bejjani became fascinated by the art of Arak-making and decided to learn the craft. He passed his passion down to his son, Robert, who took it to new heights, experimenting with unique blends and techniques to create a smooth, flavorful Arak like no other.

For the past 40 years, Robert has honed his skills, becoming a Master Distiller, and passing down the family tradition to the next generation. His middle son Ramy, was eager to build on his father’s legacy and bring a fresh perspective to the craft, combining time-tested tradition with modern technology.

The result is something truly special: a pure, crystal-clear Arak with a delicate flavor and smooth texture. They named it BLANKA, a nod to its divine, white color and its unadulterated, authentic taste.
