Warm ancient Greek potion for cold winter evenings.

Roots Spirits is a bold and fresh company founded in 2013, when two Greek brothers Manos and Nikolas decided to go back to their roots, find the best Spirits their history has to offer, and bring them to us in an exciting new form. Four Root liquors are handcrafted and based on ancient herbal remedies dating back to the middle of the 19th century, using natural native ingredients of Greece. In just a few years, Roots potions conquered the best bars in London, Athens, Rome, and Paris. Each Spirit has its own story.

Rakomelo is, as the name implies, a wonderful beverage made from Raki and honey. Raki is a Brandy-type Spirit from Crete, made from grape pomace, very similar to the Italian Grappa. Honey and spices come from Aegean Islands and the locals used Rakomelo as a warm winter delicacy and a remedy for cold and wet months. Strong and flamboyant aromas will embrace your home when you serve it hot off the stove with a slice of orange and clove; or you can make a cozy Rakomelo and lemon soda cocktail. It's a wonderful harmony of the strong Raki Spirit and sweetness of honey. We can't imagine winter without it. Of course that doesn't mean you can't have it in the summer. Just chill it down first.

Ratings & Reviews
Unbelievable flavor meat or mixed with ginger ale.
Excellent, natural honey & cinnamon
This was not what I expected. #1 I failed to notice the alcohol content before I bought and so was a little disappointed it was only 24% (I like stronger liqueurs). #2, I had never tasted raki, so I didn't know what to expect, but I'd hoped it would be something sweet and herbal, but it is a very unique taste, and I think you either like it or you don't. Unfortunately, it's not for me.
Tastes just as described. Definitely a very unique and strong flavor. Personally, I like it over ice. Nice winter dessert supper.
I'll give it a 9 so as not to hurt its rating. It sounds as if this is a great example of Rakomelo; but, although Rakomela sounded interesting, it's just is NOT for me. It is a STRONG taste. You'd be well served to have tried a wee dram before investing in a bottle.
