A local Rakı producer company declared the existence of World Rakı Day in 2006 and since then more and more Turks (and certainly Kurds) are happily joining ranks to celebrate Rakı drinking. The exact day changes one or two days since then – since this tradition is still being invented- but this year collectively decided: 13 December. For outsiders, Rakı is very similar to Greek drink, Ouzo.

Tomorrow we are invited to a house party to celebrate the day… Check out the 22 brands of Rakı in Turkey:


Rakı drinking is definitely a social activity and Rakı cannot be though without a rich existence of meze… A few days ago it was patented as a Turkish product (!)

  1. Well, I’m more of a French Wine person, but I would definitely try Raki, specially with a lot of Meze around. Hope you have an enjoyable time, Erkan.
