“35N Cretan Distillery”, more than a name…
“Artisanal Tsikoudia”, more than a distillate!
35N stands for a small spot on our planet’s 35N parallel, the location of an ancient island with a history of 5.000 years whose residents have always been living & acting with heart & soul. This island is Crete. The “35N Cretan Distillery” has its origins in the spirit of real companionship. It is the outcome of a close friendship which in 2020 lasts for more than 30 years. In this get-together, George Markoulakis & Pantelis Fanourgakis decided to support Ilias Melissourgos in making his dream come true… to produce the best “Artisanal Tsikoudia”, the one deserving its history & its origins. A tsikoudia, of which they, too, would be proud to offer & drink. The Cretan tsikoudia, humble from its very beginnings, was traditionally produced from ancient Cretan varieties’ grape remnants. It was used as medication, but also to welcome guests, begin a meal, a celebration or a friendly chat. It also marked the end of an exhausting day, a meal or a feast.
“Kritiki Tsikoudia apo Moschato Spinas” is produced by a grape variety that grows in the mountains of Crete & has a dynamic & aromatic character full of surprises! The distillation of Muscat Spinas gives us a fine distillate, gracious & smooth, with a lasting, enduring aftertaste. It is produced in artisanal discontinuous distillation with fractional copper alembics in Rethymno. Preferably served at 12°C to be enjoyed, after letting it rest in your glass for a few minutes
Always drink it in a company, never alone!
