A traditional Greek spirit aperatif that is licorice/anise flavoured and when mixed with water, it turns into a cloudy, opaque white colour which is called “ouzo effect”.

No other beverage is so synonymously linked to a country’s culture and in 2006 the Greek government won the exclusive right to use the product name ouzo.

It is a potent drink and its usual alcohol content is 40% because of its high sugar content, the alcohol release is delayed.
