Established in the mid-nineteenth century, Tetteris Distillery is a family-run business that uses traditional methods and recipes. Stylianos Tetteris began distilling ouzo on his native island in 1846, and it was particularly popular with the wives of the occupying Turkish forces. Eventually, his ouzo and mastiha was imported to Istanbul and, by 1930, to Egypt, where many Greeks resided. In 1912, just after the liberation of Chios from the Turks, Styllianos’ son, Ioannis, officially opened the distillery, and it became the first authorized distillery of the Greek state.
