Arrack -

A general name for numerous spirituous liquors drunk in the East, variously made from coarse palm sugar or "Jaggery," Rice, kumiss, the juice of dates, cocoanuts and other palms, etc.

The "Saki" or Rice Spirit of Japan is a softened sound of "Arracki."

Arrack is consumed here to a limited extent, that from Batavia being considered the best. It is too powerful to be generally popular as a beverage, but it finds favor for use in punches and with grape fruit, etc. When sliced pineapples are put into Arrack and the spirit is kept for some time, it mellows to a delicious flavor and many consider it then unrivaled for "nectarial punch" or "rack punch."
