Maitrank Festival: The Favourite Aperitif in Arlon
The secret of the Maitrank is jealously guarded in Arlon, where everyone has their own recipe. Come and enjoy this drink in Arlon on 25 and 26/05/13.
So what is Maitrank?
This Arlon beverage is extracted from sweet woodruff flower soaked in Moselle wine with oranges and other spices.
Every year, the city celebrates its local aperitif, a seasonal drink that is typical of the region.
During these festivities, folk bands parade across the city. Several Maitrank tasting stands are set up in the centre of town where a fountain of the famous drink lies, while a show takes place on the Place Leopold.
