ARGO WINE APOSTOLAKIS S.A.
The TSiPOURO of the APOSTOLΑKIS FAMILY
With a flavour of history
Magnesia, a place renowned not only for its natural beauty, but also for the fine quality of the local tsipouro
The local tradition and the distillation process date back to 1922, when refugees from Asia Minor settled in Nea Ionia. Those refugees stayed faithful to their old habits and lifestyle, so after work they would gather in homes and taverns, the so-called "tsipouradika’’, where they sipped the traditional tsipouro from Smyrna. The spirit was home distilled with great care and passion.
Over time, the locals also joined them, and they were slowly initiated into the secret recipes and method of preparation. Nowadays, tsipouro is considered to be the traditional drink of the region and it makes the perfect accompaniment to the seafood delicacies. Tsipouradika, which originated about a century ago, continue to be a meeting point for all kinds of people.
The TSiPOURO of the APOSTOLΑKIS FAMILY has adopted the long tradition, passion and experience of the distillers from Thessaly, and it is distinguished for its excellent quality and taste.
The multiple distillation from the grape juice of the fine variety Muscat, the fermentation method and the right proportion of ingredients are the secret of the exquisite quality, the light flavour and the rich aroma of our tsipouro.
The TSiPOURO of the APOSTOLΑKIS FAMILY can be savoured at all times of day, and it makes the perfect accompaniment to the traditional Greek delicacies and seafood dishes. Our tsipouro is prepared in two ways: without anise for the connoisseurs, or flavoured with anise and herbs from the lush mountains of Pelion.
