Ouzo is a typical spirit drink consumed at weddings and other celebrations in Cyprus and Greece and is made from ripe grapes, alcohol and aniseed. Its origins are believed to date back to the 14th century when the monks of Monte Atos began to make tsipouro, a pomace spirit. A version of this typical eau-de-vie was flavoured with anise and, with time, it would be this drink that gave rise to ouzo.

Among the different ouzos found in Greece, Ouzo 12 is number one in the world. Born in 1880 in the Kaloyannis Distillery of the "Barrel Nº12", to which it owes its name, this ouzo maintains to this day the exquisite taste and delicate aroma that made it the Greek leader of this type of drink. Ouzo 12 1L is produced from a secret blend of herbs, seeds and fruits - including aniseed, fennel seeds and mastic resin - whose aromas are extracted by maceration or distillation. The distillate undergoes a double distillation, carried out by passing the liquid through 16 discontinuous copper stills.

At first sight, ouzo is colourless, however, like wormwood, when mixed with water, it becomes milky. If you want to enjoy it Greek-style, drink it accompanied by small trays of fresh fish, chips, olives and feta cheese.
