> July 14-15 & 22 > Lesvos

The “moth­er­land” of Greece’s quin­tes­sen­tial fire­wa­ter, the eastern Aegean is­land of Lesvos is host­ing a three­day fes­ti­val cel­e­brat­ing all things ouzo: the gum that fla­vors it, the folk who dis­till it, the sellers who sell it, the ex­porters who send it around the world and, of course, the peo­ple who drink it. Vis­i­tors will have a chance to sam­ple more than 40 dif­fer­ent brands of the stuff, along with a bunch of great food that com­ple­ments its strong fla­vors and fra­grant aro­mas. The fes­ti­val will take place in the is­land’s cap­i­tal, Myti­lene, on Satur­day and Sunday, July 14 and 15, and then move the true cen­ter of ouzo, Plo­mari, on Satur­day, July 22. It also in­cludes dif­fer­ent mu­si­cal and culi­nary events at lo­cal tav­erns and kafeneios, giv­ing vis­i­tors the full ouzo ex­pe­ri­ence. To find out more, visit www.ouzofest.gr.
