For those of you who don’t know what we’re talking about here, well…you’ve missed a lot, guys! Ouzo is basically Greece’s national drink
. When you hear about Greeks, you know there’s ouzo around. When you see ouzo on the table, there must be at least one Greek holding the glass. You got the point, right!?
So, in case you’re still wondering what the fuss is all about, maybe this article
will help you out. Generally, there are lots of brands associated with the drink, but let’s see some of the most popular ones
Of course, this one takes the first place
for sure! That’s the absolute favourite for many people and alcohol experts as well. Not so surprisingly, the name comes from where the factory is. The city of Plomari is famous for its people, who love having fun with good company and a glass of ouzo in hand. The drink itself offers a fine and very balanced taste – delicate and yet dense. What should we say about the flavor? Well, its anise note is so light that it can leave you speechless…
Back in 1860 Eustathius Barbayanni came in town and established his own distillery, in which he began producing his first-class ouzo. Today in Plomari there’s a modern ouzo factory, where technology works hand in hand with history and traditions. It turns out the Barbayanni family kept the 150-year-old history about making ouzo and still apply it. The drink offers you two choices
– green (42% Vol.) and blue (46% Vol.). And because nobody could choose which one is better, you’ll have to try them both and decide for yourself!
If you think this one doesn’t come from Plomari this time, you’re wrong! Pitsiladi ouzo is a product made by two brothers, whose distillery combines all kinds of aromas. Figs, grapes, blueberries and, of course, anise! What’s specific here is that they dissolve the yeast with water and, if it’s necessary, add sugar. There’s no additional
Mitilini is another great ouzo, which you should definitely try at least once! It’s also made on the Greek island of Lesbos, but this time not in the city of Plomari. Mitilini, as you might have already guessed, is produced in the city of the same name. Since 1889 the tavern owners have been serving the wonderful beverage, which combines alcohol and herbal notes
so well you can’t deny its magic.
