Ouzo, Greece’s most famous drink, is a fiery anise-flavored liqueur made from crushed grape skins and aromatics. As far back as 1880, the customers of Kaloyiannis Distillery, who appreciated a fine ouzo, insisted on being served from “Barrel No. 12.” This ouzo was the result of selected seeds and herbs which were blended harmoniously and which underwent a double distillation process resulting in an exceptional ouzo with a rich flavor and fine aroma. Ouzo 12 is the best-known, top-selling brand in Greece and the biggest and most famous ouzo in the world.
Ouzo 12 is owned by Gruppo Campari.
