60 years of tradition

Kosteas distillery is a local, family-owned company in the spirits industry, especially distillates. The company was founded in Kalamata in 1962 by Thanasis Kosteas, father of today’s continuers of the family tradition, Panagiotis & Giorgos Kosteas.

Since the beginning, the company has been the supplier of Kalamata ouzo to ouzeries, cafes, taverns and the catering business in general. At the same time, the company would also sell ouzo at retail to the end customer through its traditional store.

Besides its famous ouzo, in recent years the company has also successfully expanded to tsipouro producing many products, with Golden Drop as a flagship premium tsipouro.

Lastly, the company has also entered the world of winemaking in its apparent efforts to continuously improve and grow.

Your trust

The basis for any company that wants to last in time is the consistency in creating its products and building and maintaining good relationships with our dealers and loyal friends. Therefore, our basic principle has always been to listen to our friends and to take seriously what they say. Our tactic has created a mutual trust between the company and the consumer, and that is something we enjoy and we would like to thank you all and everyone separately.

It is your own confidence and consistency in your preferences, that has led us to send some of our products to “compete” and be tested by reputable gourmands, who have come to reward these products for both their quality and design. This confidence in our capability leads us to create new products and present them without hesitation, knowing that your honest opinion is the one that matters and will eventually lead us to the top.
