“The Vallindras distillery, which has pioneered Naxos’ renowned citron liqueur –one of three Greek aperitifs marketed with a Protected Designation of Origin- is definitely worth a visit. It all began in the second half of the 19th century, when Grigorios Vallindras founded a workshop for producing the traditionally local citron-flavored spirit (kitrorako) –already in common use. In 1896, his son, Markos, decided to develop the business, creating a new distillate with alcohol and citron leaves –the citron liqueur we know today. He exported the spirit to many places abroad which had thriving Greek communities (Russia, USA, Egypt, Asia Minor), took part in many Greek and international fairs. ”
