Our family tradition begins from the village Syrakos of Epirus. This is the place from where the founder of the winery, Thanasis Gatsios started his action, after living for a long time in Konstantinople, he founded in 1878 the first distillery in Epirus. He brought from his region special herbs and seeds, old recipes and distilling secrets. He created four special beverages, such as ouzo, brandy, liqueur and tsipouro. The ouzo “NEKTAR GATSIOS” was awarded at many exhibitions (Athens 1903, Marseilles 1904, Bordeaux 1904, Liege 1905 and Milan 1908).
Today, “GATSIOS” distillery is housed in newly built, modern facilities with excellent equipment, in the heart of the valley of Arta. The origin, taste and quality are characteristics of the fine drinks of the family, whichares now identified in Greece and abroad.
Thomas and Vagelis Gatsios, the fourth generation of the family, continue producing special beverages. They always use the same traditional ways, the pure ingredients, the old recipes and the special distilling. This is the heritage and the continue of the family tradition.
