It started generations ago, in Rechmaya, where a love of Nature first took root.

In more recent times, it started like great stories often do: with an idea.
What if that love of Nature could be contained within a sip?
What if the place that produced such serene summer afternoons, could also
produce the only thing that could make them even better?
And what if a casual pub grew around it?

Chady and Maya asked all these questions and found an answer:
Rechmaya Distillery. A place for food, people, creativity, and cheerful conversation.

Oh, and gin. Gin was important too.


Founders Chady & Maya worked both in the creative world of the Dubai ad industry.

But it’s also a very corporate world, and soon enough that love of nature and freedom filtered back in, turning their hearts towards home again, this time to open their own
craft distillery in their native loved village: Rechmaya.

Passionate about flavours and experimenting with different ingredients, Chady with a cooking certificate, took advanced courses in distilling to be able to craft the best balanced Gin recipe. Maya, his wife, after years in communication, focused on giving the brand a cool and cheerful image.

Completing each other, both being happy persons that love socialising and hosting,they were longing while being abroad to their grown garden, the amazing mountains view while relaxing under the apricot tree, enjoying a drink or a barbecue with friends.

So they took a decision and that was it! Let’s be happy and fulffill our passion!
