Transparent, crystal clear colour. Delicate notes of anise and aromatic herbs. The taste is balanced, full-bodied and refreshing. The aftertaste is herbal, highlighted by a slight sweetness in the finish.
The classic way of serving is as follows: water at room temperature is poured into the glass, ice is added, then the Ouzo is poured. The sharp drop in temperature and the dilution of the alcohol release the essential oils contained in the aniseed and the other added flavours that make drinking Ouzo an amazing experience. Ouzo is an ideal companion for savory, spicy, fried or grilled hors d'oeuvres.
