Ouzo can be kept in the refrigerator, freezer or just in the cupboard. Ouzo is served in a small Ouzo (shot) glass or in a glass with a long neck. It can be drunk straight or with ice cubes. Adding water or ice gives the ouzo a white colour. In Greece, you toast, shout 'Yammas' and drink it in one go. Then you are a real Magas. But ouzo can also be drunk quietly, accompanied by small snacks. These are also called Mezedes in Greece. Some good accompaniments are squid, sardines, fried courgettes, Greek salad, olives, feta cheese and basically all Greek meals. Ouzo is indispensable during your holiday in Greece and your visit to a taverna.
The basic ingredient of ouzo is the remains of grapes after wine has been made from them. These are mainly grape residues such as skins and stalks. Ouzo must be made from at least 30 per cent of grape remains. The grapes are distilled into an alcoholic drink in large copper pots. The distilling process is repeated a second time, during which flavourings are added. Aniseed is a regular part of the flavour spectrum, but depending on the distiller, things like fennel seed, nutmeg, cloves and/or mastic may also be added. The resulting drink is bottled and drunk.
Did you know that since 2006, ouzo has been awarded a protective designation of origin (PDO)? This means that ouzo may only be called ouzo if it is made in Greece. Many of the Greek islands produce ouzo, but Lesbos is the island of the famous Plomari ouzo. On this island alone, there are more than 20 ouzo factories, the largest of which are in Plomari and Mytilini.
