Buying Ouzo made easy
The classic Greek drink Ouzo is a social drink and symbolizes the spirit of
Greek life. You don't drink it on its own but rather with friends, and
preferably with a small Meze. Ouzo is made from a precise combination of pressed
grapes and herbs and berries including aniseed, licorice, mint, wintergreen,
fennel and hazelnut.
Sambuca is considered to go particularly well with coffee. Like other anise liqueurs, it may be drunk after coffee as a ammazzacaffè or added directly to coffee.
#12 As far back as 1880, customers at Kaloyiannis' distillery who knew about Ouzo asked to be served from "Barrel No. 12"; the one containing the best tasting Ouzo. A precise combination of Tsipoura (pressed grapes) and select herbs and berries including aniseed, licorice, mint, wintergreen, fennel and hazelnut. Their years of experience create a smooth, sophisticated spirit. Price: $19.12 Buy

Ouzo starts as a strong spirit made from pressed grapes or raisins. Other herbs and berries may also be added at the fermentation stage. The key to drinking ouzo is to eat snacks known as mezedes.
Almost anywhere in Greece one can find an ouzerie. Similar to a cafe, an ouzerie serves mezedes (appetizers) that are made to accompany Ouzo. Ouzo drinking is an art. Or maybe it's a way of life. Ouzo is drunk with
“respect”, in small, slow sips, so that it can “compose” its taste. If you are a
first time Ouzo drinker, we suggest that you don't drink it straight.
