Diren Mahlep 2020

Mahlep, also known as Mahalepi, is a fragrant spice derived from the seeds of wild cherries. To produce this aromatic powder, the cherry stones are broken open to obtain the seed kernel, which has a soft and chewy texture when first extracted. Once ground, the resulting spice boasts a flavor reminiscent of a blend of bitter almond and cherry, with undertones akin to marzipan.

Diren's Mahlep Aromatized Wine, often referred to as "Mahlep Vermouth", is a harmonious fusion of sweetness and semi-dryness, crafted from Horozkarası, Öküzgözü, Syrah, and Boğazkere grapes. It's an ideal accompaniment to dark chocolate, rich fruit desserts, or a traditional Turkish coffee. Moreover, it can be relished as an exotic cocktail, bearing similarities to the renowned Dubonnet. For the best experience, serve it chilled.
