The traditional Greek ouzo, with the great and most distinctive history! Everything started in 1880 in Constantinople.
There, at the Kalogiannis distillery, the connoisseurs always requested ouzo from a specific barrel. An aromatic ouzo with a rich flavor.
The story continues in Thessaloniki, where the Kalogiannis family moved in 1925. The unique flavor of their ouzo enchanted the whole city.
In 1950, this unique distillate made its way to Piraeus. There, it was bottled for the first time, introducing the carafe which became the most common ouzo bottle. But its journey didn’t end there. Its fame achieved great success beyond borders and managed to accompany flavors and moments all over the world.
A unique distillate that urges us to spend time with our family and friends. That allows us to preserve the essence of our everyday life.
Since its inception in Constantinople in 1880, Ouzo 12 has maintained the same flavor that has ranked it as the world’s number one ouzo*, remaining true to its original recipe. And this is yet another reason to raise our glasses and say, “Let’s drink to that!”.
