Description

It is possible that you have already heard about the local liqueur of Naxos, the highly aromatic and delicate “Kitron” made of citrus tree leaves.



 This delicious liquor is a product of experimentation, that has become a trademark of this island over the years, expressing a more refined side of the local production. During this tour, you will have the chance to visit the establishments of both Kitron producing families in Naxos and taste their secret, century-old recipes. 



We will take you to a citron tree garden, where the youngest members of the family will tell you all about the tree’s characteristics and its other uses. You will be able to marvel at its huge fruits and understand why they also use it in perfumery in many parts of the world.



Then, you will visit the distillation room to learn about the process, before sitting down for a private tasting, accompanied by all the foods Naxian people pair it with. Next, you will visit another distillery, in the village of Halki, where the presence of the distillery has left a mark on the village’s development.  



This distillery has been a local highlight for decades now,  and for good reason as the liqueur’s history is interlinked with the family’s past and demonstrated in the premises of this historical building. You will get to taste the secret recipe of kitron, passed down through 5 generations, and perhaps point out the differences.


Last but not least, you will visit a wine bar in the heart of Naxos town where you will taste some more versions of traditional Greek spirits like "raki".
