A New York Story: Distiller David Nahmias

New York State based distillery Nahmias et Fils, was founded by Dorit Nahmias and Master Distiller David Nahmias, who came to New York from the small Moroccan town of Taznakh. Now the team is bringing the flavors of Morrocco to New York with this traditional Mahia!

David Nahmias created  this Moroccan answer to Schnapps (or eau de vie) from recipes going back several generations of distillers in his family. In Mahia they only use figs and a small dose of anise seed. This is an ideal after dinner sipper with inviting aromas of sweet dense fig. The delicate anise seed influence freshens things up quite nicely!
