A family tradition that has its roots in the middle of last century. A tradition that brought the unique recipe of the well-known ouzo TETTERI.
The rare taste of this authentic ouzo ranks among the 10 best Greek ouzo.
The first distillation of TETTERI ouzo was made by Stylianos Tetteris in 1846, as a household product at first.
His great love and affection for his distillation led him to follow this profession.
When he observed how the women of the Turkish commander loved the taste of mastic, decided to combine those two flavors. The creation he came up with gave the mastic ouzo which was exported on the 1930s’ to Istanbul and later in Egypt.
In 1912, straight after the liberation of Chios, his son Ioannis, establishes the first TETTERI distillery. Keeping the secrets learned from his father and the traditional recipe of ouzo, that until today is being distilled.
Following their ancestors, the third generation of the family, Eleutherios & Stylianos bottles the first ouzo in 1947 in Chios.
