Mahia Fig Spirit

Item # 27111 750mL

Master distiller David Nahmias has called his unique perspective to create a locally made "Mahia" or eau de vie from recipes going back several generations of distillers in his family. In Mahia they are using only figs an a small dose of anise seed. This is an ideal after dinner sipper with inviting aromas of sweet dense fig and delicate anise seed influence that freshens things up quite nicely!

Staff Pick Notes

David Namias, the master distiller behind Namias et Fils, knew as a young man that one day he would make the same eaux-de-vie his parents had made. David grew up in a small Moroccan town, south of Taznakht, where his family was famous for making one of the best eau-de-vie in Morocco. After 25 years working as a software engineer, David and his wife, Doris, decided to jump into the spirits business. They revived David's family recipe of Mahia, an eau-de-vie made with fresh figs and a touch of anise. The result is a very fine and delicate spirit. First, you will be charmed by sniffing it, then you will be captivated by the beautiful fresh fig flavor, almost candy-like, and the subtle anise that comes towards the end. Try it and you will always want to have a bottle ready at home!
