Episode 93: Rockland Old Arrack Extra Strong
Episode 93 features Rockland Old Arrack Extra Strong from Sri Lanka. The small bottle came to me as a gift from a friend in his luggage following a trip to Sri Lanka. Bottled in 180ml at 34% ABV, or 68 proof and it retails for about $2 at this size.
If you can find Arrack, enjoy some while listening to this episode!

Brief Historical Timeline:
- 1924 - The Rockland Distillery is founded
- 2022 - I get a small bootle of Old Arrack Extra Strong to try!
I suggest it be enjoyed it neat, but Rockland suggests on their website the following signature serve:
- 50 ml Extra Strong Old Arrack
- 100 ml king coconut water
- 15 ml lime juice
- 20 ml sugar syrup coconut flack
Add all the ingredients in the Shaker, shake well and strain into a tall glass.
