The Plomari Ouzo Distillery Isidoros Arvanitis has relocated to a new site in the midst of a magnificent olive grove, but is still in picturesque Plomari, the place where Isidoros Arvanitis first created Ouzo of Plomari in 1894 and where it has been produced for over 100 years. The Distillery combines traditional distillation and production methods with the latest scientific bottling and packaging techniques. It consists of small, handmade copper stills, while all procedures are carried out under strictly controlled conditions rigorously observing all health regulations. The aniseed and fennel used in the distillation process are of a high quality and come from the Distillery’s own fields in Lisvori, Lesvos.

The island of Lesvos, and particularly the village of Plomari, has a long history in the production of ouzo.
Ouzo is produced here by Greek families from the beginning of the 19th century and is distilledin the same traditional way to this day. Therefore, Plomari is not accidentally considered the home of ouzo. Due to its geographic location between Europe and Asia, Plomari was an eminent commercial port during the 19th century. Its inhabitants were cosmopolitan sailors and merchants who formed an affluent class that knew how to appreciate the true pleasures of life. These factors, combined with the fertile land of Lesvos, which contains a rich variety of herbs and seeds, helped the local producers create ouzo of exceptional quality.The aura of the locals matched with the flavoured drink that carried them away when they were not travelling in their ships.
