Since ancient times the residents of the island of Amorgos and the Small Cyclades produced a hot drink/beverage called vrastari which is basically adding raki, sugar, cinnamon and cloves in boiling water. They drank this when they had a sore throat. Whatever was left over they kept in a bottle and used it to treat their guests. This drink is also the official drink used to treat the visitors at the Monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa in Amorgos.
This drink is the source of our inspiration to set up our distillery Amorgos in 2003. After adding honey to the recipe and another 8 herbs that thrive in Amorgos we prepared the drinks Amorgion Rakomelo 25% vol and Amorgion Psimeni (Baked) 20% vol. Their formula is unique! A Grape distillate (called raki) mixed with honey and herbs. In 2007 based on the successful formula of Amorgion we created 4 more new drinks. The Mastichato (Rakomelo with Masticha), the Lemontelo (honey with lemon), the Portomelo (honey with orange) and the Melikraton (honey with wine).
All our drinks have patents from The Hellenic Industrial Property Organisation (OBI) and patented names (labels) at the Ministry of Development. All our drinks are prepared with traditional local ingredients without any preservative. Our drinks can be consumed either as an aperitif (appetizer) or as a digestif (digestive), accompanied with assorted nuts and fruits. Enjoy!
