History

The distillery was founded in 1962 by Loukatos brothers and was one of the first distilleries of both, Patras and Greece. The initial spirits produced were the traditional Ouzo, Brandy and Tentoura – the famous liqueur of Patras. Today, LOUKATOS BROS has passed onto second generation who continues the production of the traditional recipes as well as the production of a wide range of new innovated alcoholic spirits and liqueurs and of course great quality wines –such as Mavrodaphne and Muscat of Patras. Maintaining our 50 year tradition in the process and technique of fine distillation, we continuously improve and seek new ways to better serve the premium domestic and international markets.

The Wine

Our distillation and bottling take place at the sunny hillsides of Patras -the ancient place of Dionysus worship -the Greek god of grape harvest, winemaking and wine. Patras is a place of fertile land and tradition for distillery and wine making –for the last two centuries the hometown for many world renowned spirit producers. Located in the Achaia region, Patras is the third largest city of Greece with 300,000 inhabitants. A historic port and link between Greece & Western Europe, Patras is a longstanding hub for commerce and culture.
