Aged Cretan Tsikoudia by Toplou Monastery

Aged Cretan Tsikoudia by Toplou Monastery is produced based on the thorough knowledge of Toplou Monastery monks in the preparation of traditional Cretan spirits of exceptional quality.

The Aged Cretan Tsikoudia by Toplou Monastery is made from fresh fermented grapes grown in the organic vineyards of the historical monastery in Siteia Crete. The monks use an ancient method for their distillation, boiling in low temperature and for a long time, in order to capture and preserve the complex aromas and flavors of the grapes. The aging takes place in oak barrels giving the tsikoudia its deep golden colour.

At the back label of the Aged Cretan Tsikoudia by Toplou Monastery the philosophy behind the creation of all their unique tsikoudia distillates is revealed: "It is simple to produce a fine tsikoudia as long as you have five centuries of tradition, top quality grapes and God's blessing."

It is a unique gift with distinctive Cretan character to offer to friends or colleagues. It is served frozen and is an ideal digestive drink.
