Introducing myself and saying hello

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Wanted to drop in and say hello. My name is Ilias Mastrogiannis and I recently started the process of getting a Greek Distillery started in the state of WA (talk about timing). I'm a third generation distiller and want to bring some of the Greek Spirits that my grandfather and dad started back home to the States.

I've already meet with a few you personally or over email, I hope to meet the rest of the folks and get to be an active community member.

Cheers,

Yassou, Ilias! Welcome to the forum.

I've long been a fan of Greek spirits. Back in the late '70s, an ex-girlfriend's Greek father used to bring back bottles of ouzo, tsipouro, and mastika for us from Thessaloniki. A far cry better than anything available in the states. As an absinthe distiller, I have a fondness for anise spirits and have made a few small batches of anise tsipouro. Good stuff!

Best wishes in your worthy endeavor of bringing your heritage to Washington!

Thank you Gwydion. You have been very lucky to try some of the authentic Greek spirits directly from Greece. I agree the imports here in the States are not the best options.

Looking forward to meeting you in person and trying some of your absinthe.

Cheers,
