Tsipouro (also called tsikoudia or raki in Crete) is a quintessential Greek spirit alongside the more commonly recognised Ouzo. Tsipouro is made by distilling the residue of grapes left over from the wine pressing process and produces a strong spirit of 40-45% alcohol. While traditionally tsipouro has no additives to affect taste, certain central and northern regions of Greece are known for producing tsipouro with anise flavour and there is a growing trend of ageing tsipouro in barrels enabling a range of unique flavours related to each barrel's previous use! At Greece and Grapes we are proud to offer a larges election of Greek tsipouro for sale including the popular tsipouro from the Tsililis, Apostolaki and Babatzim distilleries along with some lesser known stars that deserve you attention. With our new reduced shipping charges for the UK, Europe and selected states in the US and our exclusive tsipouro tasting packs it is easy to sample a variety of the modern tsipouros currently being produced in Greece!
