Ashtarout started off as a project to help alleviate the financial burdens faced by apple farmers in Lebanon. Originally, the plan was to produce a variety of apple-based products, but focus shifted to producing arak full-time. We have been improving on our recipe ever since, and have recently introduced Ashtarout Arak from our organic orchard under conversion.
