The Promponas Distillery visit was an incredible experience and definitely a highlight of our trip to Greece! Sofia was an excellent guide, and it was clear how passionate she is about her family's business. The tasting plates she laid out were delicious, with cheeses, jams, and breads sourced directly from Naxos or broader Greece, and she describes the background of each. And of course, the Kitron and other spirits were amazing, and we learned so much about the island and the business, loved the family feel and the ambiance of the distillery. Beyond the tour, Sofia has made us feel so welcome in Naxos and I highly recommend booking this tour!

Sofia was the friendliest host! She even made a tasting for us today even though there weren't scheduled due to the ouzo filling in bottles process done today. We enjoyed our private tasting a lot and would recommend to anyone Interested in local liqueur. The family owned buisness makes you feel very homey and welcome! Book this tour you won't regret it!

Amazing time learning about the distillery and distilling process with Sofia ! She was very knowledgeable & welcoming. It was like having a tasting experience with family by the end of the tour.

Don’t miss out on this incredible experience! Sofia was the epitome of Greek hospitality. Not only was she knowledgeable about her family’s Citron production (which has been in business since 1915), she was personable and set up a unique experience where my wife and I were able to enjoy pairings of their family’s brand of spirits (including Ouzo, different types of Citron and Rakhi) with local bites. I could not recommend this more. Trust me if you’re on the island and she has an opening you should take it. I will be telling all of my friends and family about this amazing tasting.
