Three unforgettable nights in Athens…


Visited by locals and visitors from all over the world, Brettos is the oldest distillery in Athens as it started operating in 1909. It is located in Plaka, in the historic center of Athens. The building is 200 years old and the decor is a wall of coloured bottles that are lit from behind, which creates a very interesting contrast. Try their homemade ouzo, any of the 36 different types of liqueur or their brandy (3,5 or 7 star).
