Description

Callicounis Distillery enjoys the highest distinction as one of the oldest distilleries still operating in Greece under the ownership of the family that founded it in 1850.
Innovation, quality and ethics are the resonant principles that keep this historical company in the forefront as it slowly movies into the fifth consecutive generation of the Callicounis family.
Callicounis Distillery was founded thanks to the inspiration and skill of the company founder, Nikolaos Callicounis, who envisioned and introduced steam technology to Kalamata in 1800.
As one of the oldest distilleries in Greece, know-how and experience have been transmitted from generation to generation, culminating in the award of numerous prizes.
