Description

Lazaris Distillery & Artisan Sweets was founded in 2005 by Konstantinos Lazaris. Inspired by the legendary Corfiot kumquat tree, Konstantinos Lazaris and his team pursue a passion to preserve the gastronomic tradition of the island of Corfu. The distillery produces the island’s traditional kumquat liqueur based on a local recipe certified as a Protected Geographical Indication P.G.I, as well as a Limoncello, the famous Italian liqueur which is deeply entwined with Corfu’s culinary tradition and the ‘Ouzo Lazaris’, the only ouzo of Corfu using a double distillation process in a bronze vessel. On the other hand, the company produces traditional, handmade Corfiot sweets that revive the flavors and aromas of the past which introduce the modern global traveler to the flavors of a bygone era.
Lazaris products are handmade, promoting the Corfiot tradition and nobility. In the distillery and confectionery workshops, experienced cooks use traditional Ionian recipes and also experiment with new culinary creations. Lazaris products are made from pure ingredients, without chemical preservatives.
Since its sweets don’t contain any fat, they are ideal for all ages. Its packaging is distinguished by its modern design and contemporary aesthetic.
The past and future meet in the company’s state-of-the-art facilities. Lazaris Distillery & Artisan Sweets offers the visitor a journey of the senses.

TOUR AND TASTING

As you enter, the aromas overwhelm you. The tour starts in the confectionery manufacturing facility (kumquat spoon sweet, mandoles, mandolato, sykomaida, loukoumi) and as you watch the production process, you are taken on a trip into the culinary history of Corfu.
On the 1st floor, the intense aroma of alcohol pleasantly “intoxicates” you, as you learn more about the production process of our kumquat and limoncello liqueurs, as well as our beloved ouzo.
Back on the ground floor, the rich tasting buffet invites you to taste.
