Ouzo 12 is the Ouzo with the extraordinary aroma of history and tradition. Every single bottle is representative of the soul of Greece. It took its name in 1880 at the Kaloyannis Distillery from “Barrel No. 12”. This extract was preferred for its rich taste and its delicate aroma.

Ouzo 12 originated in Constantinople, now known as Istanbul, in 1880. With the passing of the years is has affirmed itself as the most popular ouzo brand in the world, always remaining faithful to its original recipe.

Ouzo has its roots in tsipouro, which is said to have been the work of a group of 14th-century monks on Mount Athos. One version of it was flavoured with anise. This version eventually came to be called ouzo.

Ouzo 12 is made by double distilling grape alcohol with anise, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander and nutmeg.
