That same cellar is in use today proudly displaying the bottles from 1864 when Vasilios Mavrakis founded the renowned distilleries in Argos bearing his name ever since. This is where the original extracts and liqueurs were created from carefully picked local varieties of grapes and fruits using traditional harvesting methods and a ‘know-how’ that lends its roots to Homeric times. Mavrakis products for almost 150 years became synonymous with good quality and taste. Today the fourth generation of the family faithfully continues to produce with unquenched zest inherited from their forefathers, fine quality ouzo, brandy, liqueurs, tsipouro, and vodka.

The Mavrakis distilleries use the old recipes in combination with modern technology and strict quality controls in order to deliver to the consumer only products that do justice to a 150 year-old tradition and satisfy the finest and most discriminating taste requirements. The great care that goes into each and every one of the Mavrakis products (brandy, ouzo, liqueurs, tsipouro, and vodka) starts with the scholastic selection of raw materials, moves on to the diligent distillation process, and continues with unsparing allowance to long-term maturing and fine blending in oak barrels for the brandy, and in stainless steel tanks for the ouzo in order for its unique aroma to develop. The process ends with the final check when tasting is performed.
