One distillery in Yonkers is bringing the taste of Morocco to its signature drinks.

David and Dorit Nahmias own the Nahmias Et Fils distillery on Saw Mill River Road. Figs are fermented into the alcohol to add touches of Nahmias' native country.

"We are the only distillery in the United States that is making mahia," Nahmias says.
