Ouzo

Hands Down! It is the most popularly consumed distilled spirit in entire Greece and it was introduced by the refugees who came from Asia Minor. Is the substance which is found in anise plants. The different thing about ouzo is that it separately dilutes in the water. Moreover, it is extremely popular during the summertime and people like to have it along with grilled octopus, sardines, and fried squid. But make sure that you do not have an empty stomach and combine it with ice & water.

Do you know?

Classic Greek Spirits are used as a home remedy as they serve the purpose of antiseptic.

Tsipouro/Tsikoudia

Tsipouro, Tsikoudia, and Raki are all the same spirit and, unlike ouzo, all these are grape distillates. Their alcoholic grade is higher as compared to ouzo and this is the reason these are stronger.

Tsipouro originated back in the 14th century on Mount Athos and then it came to Greece. It does have a sweet taste to it. You can drink the spirit right away and there is no need to dilute that with ice or water.

Tentura

Tentura originated from the Greek city of Patra which is located in the Eastern part and it became popular in the 15the century. The herbs and spices are a mixture of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and citrus fruits-spices along with sugar and alcohol.

In most cases, it is served with small shot glasses over ice or in cocktails and mostly after the meal as it is considered as the form of digestive drink.

Kumquat Liqueur of Corfu

In Chinese, its literal translation is golden orange which is precisely what the fruit looks like. It is bitter-tasting citrus fruits you cannot eat raw, although liquor is extremely sweet. It demonstrates how you can consume the liquor by having different fruits.
