The Idea Syrup has been used since the very old times in medicine as a mean to transfer the salutary nutrition of vegetables and herbs. The specific syrup is composed of concentrated essence and aroma based upon a sweet flavor. Sometimes fruity, sometimes floral, sometimes sharp tasting.

Naturally concentrated aromas Fancy red, light full yellow syrup, is something that we all are familiar with. The problem with those syrups is that the colors are artificial and the aromas are not always natural. In those practices we oppose syrup with natural aromas and colors of local flowers and herbs.

New Flavors We have not tasted them all yet, there are a lot of unknown and unusual aromas to taste and discover. All of them grow next to us; the land of Crete is full of those, mallow, nettle and plantain, are some of them.

Imagination in gastronomy Syrups in an extended use constitute a challenge for new tastings. So we try to combine the basil, not only with the tomato but with the fruits as well, and the sage not only as a beverage but with cream as well.

Uses Syrups are used diluted 1:5 to 1:8 as beverages with water or soda or mineral water, in lemonades, during the winter with hot water or with the tea, with Champaign or white wine, in Cocktails. No undiluted (as it is), cooking sweet and sour (glaze roast or vegetables, in salads), color and essence in whipped cream and yogurt, in deserts, fruit salads, ice creams, as medicine: Local medicine accredits in many flowers and blossoms curative attributes. Plantain can be very helpful in cough, mint is digestive and also reduces the symptoms of common cold, Hibiscus is consumed to increase the tinkle, helps the metabolism and is also used for the relief from heat.


The producer


Dinapoja liqueuers and syrups are made from Cretan tsikoudia, and natural ingredients flowers, fruits and herbs. Dinapoja's cottage industry started as a hobby. Katie Dinapoja's love for nature, fruits, herbs and flowers was the reason. Friends and neighbors offered the fruits from their gardens. Myrtles are growing on their gullies and the local mountains generously provide a big selection of aromatic herbs. Mrs Katie, being an organic farmer for many years, could not resist the colors, flavors and aromas of the Cretan land. So she started experimenting by collecting flowers, herbs and fruits, which she processed to offer in a glass.

In other words, she started making liqueurs, syrups, and in the meantime she flavored sugar and made it sweet, sometimes fragrant and sometimes spicy! Initially, for personal use. Later, to please her friends. However, the great acceptance of her preparations quickly nurtured the ambition of creating homemade products that did not exist in the market till then. Today Dinapoja products are available for all of you who are seeking for something different and special, a unique experience in the world of taste.
