Barbayannis Ouzo Museum - Plomari, Lesvos, North Aegean Region, Greece



"The Ouzo Barbayannis family has been passionately pursuing perfection in the taste of ouzo and preserving the traditional distillation techniques for five generations. As a result, the Barbayannis name is identified throughout the world for its prime ouzo, the finest Greek liquor beverage.

Today, in the picturesque settlement of Plomari, Lesvos, technology harmoniously co-exists with history and tradition. The Ouzo Museum was founded to express the love and passion the Barbayannis family has for the production of ouzo.

The Ouzo Museum is located next to the modern, privately-owned distilleries of the Barbayannis ouzo production facilities.

In the museum visitors can see the original equipment used to bottle and label the famous Ouzo Barbayanni Blue, as well as the first alembic, constructed in 1858 in Constantinople, used for testing century-old secrets and techniques, and to compose the recipes of the Barbayannis family."
