Respecting the hundred-year-old recipe that Dimitris Giannatsis left us as a legacy, we revived the old technique of rakidzides of Lesvos and let the distillate rest for a long time, the aromatic ingredients (from freshly harvested anise from Lisvori, quality barley, sweet onions etc.) to be homogenized, the aromas to emerge and the taste to be gently tied and rounded in the tank, until it becomes ouzo and reaches our table, as "ouzo of 6 months of maturation".
An ouzo, which, while is high grade in alcohol, it is very balanced. While it has no sugar (dry), it leaves a sweet aftertaste. And while it is "like ouzo used to be", it appears modern with the nutritional requirements of the market today.
The New handmade Retro packaging wanted to differentiate significantly from other packages on the shelf or the shop window with a hint of originality and elegance.
The original idea was born from the memories of immigration after the first world war and the civil war, that means sixty years ago- in the, early 1950s. Then the economic situation of Greece was awful. Poverty ruled the cities and the countryside.
The Greeks-being cut off-struggled desperately to bear the economic burden but in vain. Quickly Greek people saw that there was no other solution but to immigrate again. A lot of Greek people immigrated to nearby European Countries which had development like Australia, South Africa and USA The Greek people made a great fortune.
