Punch Drunk

Oghee (pronounced something like ‘orh-ee’) are delicious fruit vodkas, sometimes called vatsun or aragh, made in village orchards everywhere. Around 60% alcohol, oghee is made from apples, pears, apricots, pomegranates, grapes, cherries, Cornelian cherries or cornels, mulberries and figs. The best mulberry (t’te) and Cornelian cherry (hone) oghee are intense, lingering liqueurs. Vedi Alco makes some oghee commercially, weaker than the village stuff. You won’t need to go far to try some; it’s a usual accompaniment to a khoravats dinner. The drink tastes best in autumn when homes turn into distilleries after the harvest.
