There is no household in Crete without a bottle of tsikoudia to hand. With a glass of tsikoudia Cretans exchange greetings, welcome their guests, talk and share jokes. Also, with a glass of tsikoudia, they leave their sorrows behind and resolve their differences. The origin of the Greek word "raki" derives from the ancient Greek word ''rax'' which means grape while  the word tsikoudia derives from the word ''tsikouda'' which means residue [mark]. Tsikoudia is the King of all drinks as it is completely free of any coloring or any industrial alcohol [i.e.alcohol produced from potatoes or sugar beets] while at the same time  it provides anxiolytic properties which warm the heart and the spirit and stimulate the appetite, the digestion and the heat of our body. Cheers!

    Best Cretan tsikoudia ever drink.

    I get a bottle of tsikoudia every summer, after several holidays in Crete. This tsikoudia is by far the best that I have tasted outside of Greece.
    Will be buying again in the future.
