In a nutshell:
A rich tasting and delicately fragant, quintessentially Greek aniseed spirit.
Ouzo is Greece's contribution to the rich array of aniseed spirits hailing from different parts of the world and Ouzo 12 is one of the leading brands. While anise is naturally the defining flavour the secret recipe also includes a further range of seeds and herbs to give it its characteristic exquisite flavour and aroma. It's generally drunk either as a refreshing aperitif, or on ice or with chilled water.
