It’s Greek Moonshine… and to Greek people it’s best known as Tsipouro. OK, now that you got that, sometimes it’s better known as Raki (but not the Raki that you may think you know, the one from Turkey or Armenia…) Rakii *spelled with two i’s for TTB/legal reasons-not to confuse the consumer with the best known Raki on the market, this style of Raki is usually made only in Greece and named Tsipouro. Lazy Eye Rakii is being craft distilled in a most unlikely place, Southern New Jersey. Richland, NJ.  This craft distillery is not just around the corner from anywhere in particular, like NYC for instance, it makes for a good day trip.
