Forget the Russian one, Greeks are making their own Vodka

5 months ago

Amid the boycotting push surrounding Russian products and services, Vodka is also amongst the ‘victims’ of this senseless war with many retailers refusing to stock or sell the famous spirit.

Fear not, for Greek innovation is never far away. Enter: Kástra Elión, the Greek olive vodka. Kástra Elión is distilled from wheat and a mixture of olives hand-picked in Nafpaktos, Greece.

“Kástra Elión, Greek olive vodka, makes for elegant sipping with a modicum of richness. Don’t skip the olives in a martini; the taste delivers but a whiff of the flavoring. The vodka is distilled from wheat and a mixture of olives hand-picked in Nafpaktos, a town defined by a castle, the Kástra of the name. (Elión is a derivative of the word “olive.”) It comes in a lovely glass bottle,” writes Florence Fabricant in the New York Times.

Family-owned and artisan-crafted in Greece, Kástra Elión is the original premium sipping vodka distilled from Greek olives.

“Three generations in the making, it combines tradition innovation love for the flavors and heritage of the Mediterranean to create an experience rich in history and elegance. Picked by hand, cold-pressed within hours, and blended with curated grains, the result is a premium vodka of unparalleled smoothness and timeless sophistication.” say the makers of this amazing innovation.
