In the traditional bronze alembic distiller we extract with care and love the seeds of Cretan earth (aniseed, fennel). Nothing has changed since the old times except for the care and persistence in order to achieve the perfect result. The pleasure of your palate. An ouzo made of 100% pure extract.
Ouzo can act as a catalyst on cheerfulness. It has the power to turn a colorless world into a live one. Just enjoy it.
The ouzo Minoitis is soft and mellow with a smooth aroma and deep aftertaste. Each sip is a unique journey in the paths of Crete and in our friends.
Tsikoudia cheers our heart. The original tsipouro, strong and sharp, is based on the good quality of the raw material, but also on the art and experience of the distiller who knows how to operate the “toolheads” and the “tails”, how many degrees he will choose for his product and how he will enjoy it later! “If I don’t produce my tsikoudia, I won’t … have a good year” say old Cretans.
The Russians, Polish and Swedish quarrel about who created it first, the Americans made possible its wide expansion and alcohol lovers all over the world enjoy this neutral in aroma, color and taste drink straight, in cocktails or even to accompany their meals.
Gin constitutes a change, in a world full of neutral drinks, without any taste. On the contrary, gin either straight or in cocktails makes the difference. After many ups and downs it is again the drink of those who appreciate drinking! Some people would say that the quality of the drink is lost in a cocktail and so using JORDAN’S in a cocktail would be pointless. However, in reality it’s the aroma and botanic elements of a good gin that make the difference!
According to the legend referring to the birth of tequila, a thunder once struck a cactus in the area of an Indian tribe in Mexico. They then observed that the plant had started to secrete a delicious and spicy fluid which, when consumed, created a pleasant mood. They considered it a gift from gods! TRES AMIGOS is consumed frozen with smashed ice and a little lime. When it is about TRES AMIGOS, we suggest that it is consumed straight as well! ../content_images/tekila.jpg
The origin of the drink is covered with mystery. When mist doesn’t come from the sea, you can imagine from Scotland the white farms on the green hills of Ireland. In the dark period of the Middle Ages the two countries united and came closer, one shouldn’t wonder about the art of distillation. The word whisky means “water of life” in Celtic. Darclay’s is to be consumed straight. Take small sips so that your saliva plays the role of water. It is also used in cocktails.
It constitutes the distillation product of the juices of sugarcane which was introduced to the Caribbean islands by Christopher Columbus. At that time the sea was dominated by pirates who assaulted cargo ships. So they made the best out of their loot by distilling molasses and they obtained the … RUM.
BARCADO is a white, but also black rum used for the production of many cocktails.
Bitter, alcoholic beverage that consists of a mixture of roots, herbages, peels, seeds from the family of berries, which are all characterized by their aromatic and bitter taste.
Each fruit or herb has its own character and oddity. Some of them need sun, some others shade depending on their sensitivity. In order to produce a liqueur, the general rule demands to blend with care and love fruit or herbs, sweetening agents and alcohol.
Aniseed in our glasses, ouzo in Greece, pastis in France, sambuca in Italy. It is one of the most popular Italian liqueurs. In Italy sambuca is served with ice and three coffee beans as an aperitif or after dinner. Sometimes it is served in a flaming shot, which you must blow out in time before all alcohol is burned out. Whatever way you choose to drink it, SECRET is unique
Our age “dictates” precious cocktails made from premium and extra premium drinks. However, some of the most in bars have made a step even forward. They have turned cocktails into art and serve them with gold dust, truffle, diamond rings with simple or sophisticated schnapps!
