#14260 Raki

Posted by Xander on 27 May 2008 - 04:21 PM in Explore Crete

You're absolutely right. The best raki is the raki you drink with nice people and friends.
I still have memories of the best evenings on which (lots of) raki was served after a nice Cretan dinner.

And, very important to me, I never had a hangover from raki. And sometimes I drink a lot of raki when it's a pleasant evening.
I can't say that about other liquors.

Wow, 7 euro for 250 ml Raki......
That's 28 euro per litre !

At the local store in our village I pay 5 euro for 1,5 litre of the finest raki. This Raki is packed in a plastic water bottle, and they make it themselves.
The 'special tastes' like honey cost 6 euro per litre.

Hi all,

I'm new on this forum. Not new to forums. I'm an active member on several other Forums about Crete.
I'm from the Netherlands.

I visit Crete since the early 80's.
I always stay in the west because I own a house in that part of Crete.

Generally I visit Crete 3 times a year.
