KARDASI DISTILLERY

In 1991 the KardasisDistillery – WineMakingwasfounded.

Over the years, the consumers began to trust the bottled tsipouro, acknowledging that it is produced by responsible producers.

Since 2006, the company applies the Food Safety Management System ISO 22000:2005, certified by TUV HELLAS.

Facilities


The distillery is surrounded by a vineyard totaling 1,5 hectares. The rest of our family’s vineyards, totaling 12,7 hectares, are located in the wider region of Tirnavos.

The cultivation process is carried out under controlled management, as regards the use of pesticides, while the fertilisation process is conducted with the use of the grape distillation residues, which serve as an organic fertiliser.

Fifty Pounds


Fifty pounds gin is a classic London dry gin with wide acceptance, prestige and medals in international competitions. It is classified in the category of premium gin. Its unique name is inspired by the British tax of 1763, which was introduced to stop the illegal production of gins. Master distiller Charles Maxwell, the 8th generation of one of the families that made the first Fifty Pounds, and his team spent 18 months recreating the secret, authentic recipe. With the long drink in mind, what was required was not a light, but with the character and duration of gins. Produced in small quantities by slow, quadruple distillation at the famous Thames distillery in south London, one of the three remaining distilleries in the British capital. It is bottled in an elegant, vintage type bottle, which has a unique number together with the year of distillation.

RUM Ingenio Manacas


Four Caribbean countries are involved in the production and maturation of the unique Manacas: from Panama rum we get elegance, from the Dominican we get rich aromas and from Venezuela we get a fruity finish. It matures in barrels used to age Cuban rum and was repatriated to Spain full of rum by Sanchez Romate's beloved caretaker Juan Jimenez Villalba in the late 1960s when the Cuban dealership closed. At the winery in Jerez he set up a small Solera with them, which he guarded with great care and attention. To this day, his valuable remarks and notes are used in the production of Manacas. The old Cuban rum, which was left in the original solera due to its age, offers complexity and oak aromas.

Abducted Malt Whiskey


An excellent malt whiskey, with excellent quality. A brand new distillate extracted from Scotland and then aged for 7 years in a row of old sherry barrels following the dynamic system "soleras and criaderas" An unreal whiskey, with a spicy touch and elegant finish for distinguished palates. Limited production of 715 bottles per year.

ROMATE, JEREZ, ESPANA - Sherry, DO Jerez


Located in the historic city center of Jerez de la Frontera, Bodegas Sánchez Romate is one of the few wineries owned entirely by the Jerez family. Founded in 1781 by Don Juan Sánchez de la Torré, it is one of the oldest Spanish wineries operating continuously to this day. As a family business it maintains its independence, continuing to produce wines with traditional artisanal techniques. However, its reputation has spread beyond Jerez, in fact it is the official supplier of the House of Lords, Vatican, Spanish royal family. Sánchez Romate's privately owned vineyards are some of the best in the Sherry triangle. The winery uses the Solera ‘steps and ladder’ system, a method unique to Jerez, which Sánchez Romate has turned into high art. They produce all types of sherry fino, amontillado, oloroso, palo cortado, cream and pedro ximénez - which are aged in traditional American oak barrels for different years depending on the type of wine. Sánchez Romate remains a milestone for Jerez wines: over 200 years of balancing tradition with cosmopolitan lifestyle, they have always aimed to satisfy the consumer by meeting the basic need: the art of living.
