Ouzo loves the sun, tasteful “meze” and good company. Small bites, sharp (spicy) and appetizer flavors. “Meze” is a selection of small dishes served to accompany alcoholic drinks like ouzo as a course or as appetizers. The key element of Ouzo-meze is variety. The contrast and the richness of flavors are necessary to have the best ouzo- experience.
An “Ouzo-meze” may consist of seafood dishes such as grilled octopus, satled fishes such as sardines, lakerda or kolios. All may be included, along with fresh salads, fava beans, grilled cheeses, called saganaki and olives. Do not forget to try steamed shellfish and sea urchin.

Aniseed from Lisvori, ouzo of Mitilini and its companions
An integral component of the ouzo culture is the famous aniseed from Lisvori. The anise, which flavours the ouzo of Mitilini, making it special and sought after, is cultivated in Lisvori, a village on Lesvos Island. A comparative advantage in its cultivation is the microclimate of the area, the fertile land of Lisvori, the proximity to the Gulf of Kalloni and the dedicated producers. EVA trusts Nikos Thermiotis and invests in personal contact with the producer, monitors, records and supports the cultivation of his fields at all stages from ploughing, sowing, manual weeding to harvesting.
