OUZO
‡ The word "ouzo" is said to have been derived from the word "üzüm", which means grapes in Turkish ‡ A popular derivation is from the Italian "uso Massalia" - for use in Marseille - stamped on selected silkworm cocoons exported from Tyrnavos in the 19th century. It is believed that this designation came to stand for "superior quality", which the spirit distilled as ouzo was thought to possess

OUZO
‡ Ouzo is made by distilling alcohol of agricultural origin in copper stills together with anise and optionally other flavorings, such as star anise, coriander, cloves, and cinnamon. The composition of flavoring ingredients are often closely-guarded company secrets and serve to distinguish one Ouzo from another. ‡ The product is a flavored alcoholic solution known as flavored ethyl alcohol or, more commonly as ouzo. Ouzo yeast is then usually mixed with 96 percent pure ethyl alcohol (the Greek law dictates that at least 20 percent of total final alcohol must originate from ouzo yeast), and finally sugar may be added and the mix is diluted with water. ‡ Some producers such as Varvayiannis, Babatzim (ouzo classic) and Pitsiladis do not add any further ethyl alcohol²they simply dilute ouzo yeast with water (and add sugar if needed). This type of ouzo is the highest quality and often of the highest price as well. ‡ Ouzo production doesn't include any fermentation
