last 145 years, and is now run by Fotis and Yiannis Karonis (4th and 5th

Karonis Distilleries we also produce distinguished cherry extract (cherry
liqueur) made with cherries from the Arcadia region.
All of our products are available in the
Peloponnese and Attica.
At Karonis Distilleries we offer the
opportunity for visits to the distillery,
to taste our products and to show you around the distilleries museum where
letters, books and many other things from 1870 and later. Combined with the
museum, a visit to our stills where ouzo and tsipouro are produced along with an
explanation of how they are made makes for a pleasant and educational day.
The aim of Karonis Distilleries is to widen
still further the area in which it is available and to develop our overseas
network to be able to offer our products abroad.
