Ouzo Factory, Mytilene

Ouzo is one of the most famous alcoholic drinks in Greece. The island of Lesvos has a tradition of making it, especially the Ouzo Mini, which is born in Mytilene, the island’s capital city. Since the 1800, tavern owners in Mytilene have tried to make ouzo from a number of ingredients found on the Aegean island. In 1967 EPOM is founded, bringing together 17 distillers. Their goal was to take their ouzo to all corners of the world, which they have achieved. Currently, the ouzo factory in Mytilene is one of the biggest ones of its kind in Greece, producing thousands of tons of ouzo annually.
