ΤΑ ΠΡΩΤΑ ΧΡΟΝΙΑ

The production of ouzo began in Greece in the middle of the 19th century, in Kalamata and in Tirnavos.

The ouzo started like a tsipouro “sweat”. Its exceptional quality, however, increased the demand so that in the 1920s, when the grape production was greatly reduced due to the phylloxera, which invaded the Greek vineyard, as well as the war events of that period, the distillers began resorting to other practices , some even ceased to use anise to flavor it.

Today, the traditional Ouzo recipe, based on anise seeds, continues in Greece.

ΚΑΤΑΝΑΛΩΣΗ

Ouzo is usually accompanied by appetizers, such as octopus, salads etc.

Serve in small or thin glasses and add fresh water and / or ice to the drink. After the addition of water, the beverage has a characteristic off-white colour due to its anise. Caution: never store in the refrigerator.

ΤΑ ΠΡΩΤΑ ΧΡΟΝΙΑ

Tsipouro is a Greek alcoholic drink that started its course about 7 centuries ago in the monasteries of Mount Athos. Tsikoudia or Raki in Crete is something similar, but the main difference is that tsikoudia is the product of single distillation.

In other countries, such beverages are Italian Grappa and Arak in the Middle East. Tsipouro usually has 36 to 45 alcoholic degrees. It should not be confused with ouzo, a drink with a different way of preparing.

ΚΑΤΑΝΑΛΩΣΗ

Tsipouro is served in small glasses and is sometimes consumed neat, it is usually accompanied by appetizers. Selected appetizers for tsipouro are considered pastourmas, walnuts and olives. Water or ice is often added to the drink. In some monasteries of Mount Athos, the monks welcome guests with tsipouro and a loukoumi, the combination of which relaxes the muscles and offers energy.
