you can easily get it in the west, here is a good online source: http://www.missionliquor.com/Store/Q...07A1B0000002B1
and before me and PL get into headlocks over differences, I will boldly state that Lebanese Arak is much better than Syrian Arak
PL, please tell me we can agree on that one, I have 2 Syrian bottles collecting dust and about 8 Lebanese bottles that I have trouble choosing from as they are all great, I will let you have this PL I came across 1 Lebanese bottle that was terrible. Anyways, I can recommend some good ones off this site if anyones interested. Also, back on subject, anyone else?
