Tsikoudia is the drink of joy and strong emotions. And Crete is its birthplace! A strong taste and intense moments of joy and strong tradition accompany this authentic Cretan drink. The production of its first drops every year is an occasion for a celebration, with unique events that strengthen the social bond between producers and wine lovers. It’s no coincidence that, in 1920, a decree signed by Eleftherios Venizelos conferred to the raki still the status of an institution, in recognition of its unbreakable bonds with Cretan culture that are still going strong. Through the decades, the values and traditions of Cretan tsikoudia have been handed down from one generation to the next, unchanged and unspoiled. Today, tsikoudia is more than an incomparable Cretan product: it is also the most genuine expression of unique Cretan hospitality! Transparent, like Crete’s heart, it comes to spread its joy to your table, as well, signed by the Zoumberakis Family.
