Ouzo is considered the national drink of Greece and it is strongly linked with Greek tradition. It is an anise-flavoured aperitif and it is produced by blending distilled alcohol with aniseed, fennel seed and other aromatic seeds, plants and fruits. Ouzo is traditionally mixed with water becoming cloudy white, sometimes with a faint blue tinge, and served with ice cubes in a small glass. It is traditionally accompanied by a small plate of a variety of appetizers called mezes usually small fresh fish, fries, olives, shellfish and more.
Ouzo Babatzim is produced in the Central Macedonia Region, by distilling high quality, natural ingredients. Aromatic seeds like anise and fennel are added to pure alcohol, exclusively from organic produce. The distillation process is complex and a secret recipe that has been passed down in the family is faithfully followed. Babatzim uses copper stills which is today considered to be the best method of ouzo production. Fragrant and elegant, this excellent Greek aperitif fills the nose and palate with fine aromas of herbs. It has a balanced mouth with a mild sweetness and aromatic aftertaste.
