Eva Distillery was founded in 1995 by the Patrikopoulos brothers on the Island of Lesbos, in Mytilene.
The development of the company is based on the family’s love and experience in the food and beverage industry.
The family’s history began in Pergamon, Asia Minor, with oriental recipes, flavours, and raw materials. Today, the third generation continues dynamically, delicately balancing tradition and modern technology.
The distillery employs state-of-the-art copper stills and bottling machines, and houses a well-equipped laboratory as well as the Ouzo Museum. An integral part of the successful development of the company is the experienced staff and network of Eva Distillery partners that ensure the optimal production, bottling, storage, distribution, and export process certified by the ISO Quality Management System: 22000 and HACCP program.
By constantly building the identity of its products, EVA is a dynamic brand name in the distillation industry and is among the top ten fastest-growing in the country. The strong distribution network of Eva Distillery consistently supports its products in Greece and in 22 countries around the world. The ouzo and liqueur range can be found in large retail and wholesale networks and at the Hellenic Duty-Free shops.
TOUR AND TASTING
At the Eva Distillery, visitors will learn all the phases of ouzo and liqueur production.
In addition, a museum located on the premises provides the opportunity to experience the production of ouzo using old alembics and other objects dating back to the 19th century, while its large bottle collection captures the spectrum of nearly all distillery companies of Lesvos. At the back of the museum, there is a beautifully designed space, representing a typical cafe of the 1930s with tables and chairs, inviting you to get to know and love the products through ouzo while listening to music from Asia Minor.
