Tsipouro is a spirit that comes from distilling grape skins and has been enjoyed in Greece for centuries. Although half as famous outside of Greece compared to its cousin ouzo, it is actually much more popular among locals.

Greeks adore tsipouro and consider it as an integral part of their culture. It is very common to be asked by someone to go for a ‘tsipouraki’ (a bit of tsipouro) which actually is an invitation to have a break and spend time eating and talking.

Discover all about the production of the most famous Greek spirits, learn their stories and their unique characteristics while enjoying carefully selected sweet and savory delicacies (meze) which help to bring out the flavours of each spirit. Greeks drink to come together, socialize, relax and appreciate the value of good company. Join us in this ritual and live a genuine experience of Greek hospitality and entertainment.
