The secret of this recipe is the combination of 15 aromatic seeds and herbs, some of which are extremely rare, in balanced proportions. This sweetness characterising the KARDASIS OUZO is attributed precisely to the use of these herbs, since it doesn’t contain any sugar.
This extract of seeds and herbs of superior quality is distilled in a small copper pot still, manufactured by Greek craftsmen in Istanbul. The distillation process is done slowly, almost mystically. The distillate is collected and, after being diluted, is stored in stainless steel tanks for a short period, until the aromas are balanced. Then, it is filtered and bottled. The soft taste and intense aromas of anise, cinnamon, bitter almond, nutmeg and mastic (and not just these) are characterizing the KARDASIS OUZO.
