Chios 1925. Konstantinos Psychis buys a beverage license from Empedocles Mastromichalakis, denouncing in reality, the dream of his grandfather Manolis and his father Antonis, who taught him the art of distillation. An art that they knew well since they kept a distillery in Chios since 1881.
Konstantinos Psychis, having now all the supplies and knowing the secrets of distillation, began simultaneously with the distillation of ouzo, mastiha and other liqueurs. He created a series of products that ranked among his compatriots.
His children, Giorgos and Panagiotis, received their knowledge and experience from a very young age. After their military duties, the individual company “Konstantinos Psychis” was renamed “K. Psychis & Sons” based in the city of Chios.
Since then, the Psychi distillery has taken part in exhibitions in Greece and abroad, presenting its products and displaying the island of Chios.
In 2006, the Psychi distillery passed to the next generation. They installed modern facilities. Now, the traditional method of distillation and production is combined with the modern way of bottling and packaging. In the new facilities, there are handmade copper nets and modern bottling lines. All procedures are carried out under strict quality controls and follow the lines of ISO 22000 and HACCP (2005 quality assurance certificate).
The presence of Giorgos and Panagiotis is catalytic. A tangible proof of a teenage effort, which gave birth to old recipes and special flavors.
The knowledge of a man was bequeathed from generation to generation with reverence in the old recipes and the art of distillation. The know-how, the experience and the meticulous selection of the seeds and plants grown in Chios give the “Psychis” products the distinct aroma and the characteristic rich flavor that distinguishes them. Ouzo, Ouzo Mastiha and Chios Liqueur are the characteristic products of the “K. Psychis & Sons”. The aroma and flavor of mastic, the genuine Hiotic anise extract, and natural alcohol, are some of the basic ingredients. “Psychis” products are now the necessary accompaniment to our special moments.
“Psychis” company is a traditional, family-owned company, constantly developing, with an export character. Modern packaging capacity can respond to the needs of a wider market.
