Kouroumichalis ouzu (2)

Greece, Eagean, Lesbos, Petra, Kouroumichalis Ouzo Distillery , Nikós Papadelis. (uncut)


Lesbos is the Ouzo island. Every town has its own distillery. These two shots are captured in the Kouroumichalis distillery (1884) of Petra. It’s owned by Ouriana Kouroumichalis, the granddaughter of the founder Vasils Kouroumichalis (who learned artisanal distilling in Turkey) and led by the very friendly gentlemen that agreed to pose here: Nikós Papadellis, who’s also the head master of the primary school in Petra.


The Kouroumichalis ouzo is deliciously refined and we took some bottles with us, back to Rotterdam.
