If you think nobody drinks in Jordan because it's a Muslem country, think again. There are many liquor shops in Amman. The Middle East is not famous for making wine but historicaly this region was the birth place of ancient winery.

I took these photos in Eagle Distilleries Co., the biggest winery in Jordan. As shown in the name, they are producing distilled liquor also. If you go to any liquor shop in Jordan, you will find "ARAK". It is very popular alcoholic drink in this area. Arak is distilled from wine, and flavoured with anis. It is colorless drink just like water but the moment when diluted with water on ice rocks it changes into milky white.
