Karonis Distillery Museum 


A family run business, the Karonis Distillery has been operated by five generations – 145 years – of Karonis.  Today, it is under the management of Fotis and Yiannis Karonis.  They produce Ouzo, Tsipouro, and Masticha, all distilled in modern copper stills. They also produce a distinguished cherry liqueur made with cherries from the Arcadia region. 


Visitors have the opportunity to see distillery artifacts, including letters, books, machinery, and equipment dating back to 1870.  One special piece that cannot be missed is the first distiller purchased by the Karonis, along with the invoice for this piece from when purchased in France in the late 1800s.   


Tastings and a tour of the modern distillery are also available. Tours are available in English, French, Spanish and German.
