      Must do when on Naxos
      We had a blast and felt like family while we were there. Love that this is a women owned and operated business. The cocktails were delish!

      Best Tour in Naxos!
      This tour was incredible. My friend and I had a private cocktail making class with Sophia and had a blast. We laughed, we danced, we sang and got to try different Citrons. I highly recommend this one when you are in Naxos. Sophia and her staff will make you feel like family.

      The best thing we did on Naxos!
      This cocktail making class was such a blast for my husband and I. Sofia, whose family owns the distillery and who lead the class, was so energetic and personable right from the very beginning. We learned that this is a new class that the family has added to their list of offerings and we are so glad we picked it! The class starts with a tour and some education about their distillery and what Citron is (which, we learned is unique to Naxos and can only be found on that island -- so cool). Then, we were set up at a beautiful bar with snacks and given tasting of all the different types of citrons. Then Sofia took us through three amazing cocktail recipes that we got to try and "blind judge" to see who did it the best. We had the full distillery to ourselves, and took our time making the cocktails and learning about Naxos, her family and Greece in general - it was truly awesome. Sofia's welcoming extended well beyond the class, as she invited us to her family's Citron shop in the Old Town of Naxos later that night where we got to meet more of her family. We had a car so easily drove there but Sofia was willing to also make transportation arrangements for us that we didn't need. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who is looking to try something different on the island!

      Amazing trip to distillery with 5 star cocktail class
      Great experience. Sophie was super friendly, funny and proud when guiding us through her family's distillery. After a short intro on the trees and production process we focused on a tasting of their products (food & drinks) and learned how to mix 3 different cocktails. The place was really nice and all the bar accessories of high quality. We really enjoyed the event in a small group of 4 and had enough time to ask questions and talk with each other. We came with our baby which was no problem at all (no drinks for him ;P ). Clear recommendations and lots of stars.

      An unforgettable introduction to citron!
      We had an amazing time at the distillery and Sofia was a fantastic guide. We learnt lots about citron and wine and had a laugh! We loved the different tasters (even though some of them were very strong!) and the food was delicious. We went to the Promponas shop afterwards to buy things to take home and met some of Sofia’s lovely family. Sofia was very helpful when we were booking the tour and arranged a taxi for us to the distillery. We’d recommend the tour to everyone visiting Naxos. Thank you for such an incredible experience!

      Amazing time!
      Was an absolutely wonderful experience. Sofia Was very lively, informative and knowledgeable about the distillery as well as how to keep the tour fun and engaging. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good time. The private tour was amazing and the cocktails were delicious. Armel was a great bartender who made the experience even better, 10/10!

      Great Time and Definitely Worth a Visit
      We had a wonderful time visiting Promponas (even our nine and five year old loved it). Katerina did an amazing job with the tour and explained the operations of the distillery fully. The food was quite tasty and the alcohol was both very enjoyable and plentiful. Plus it was a less than ten minute taxi ride from our hotel in the main town. Highly recommended.

      Must do on Naxos!
      We had a great time with Sophia! She was so enthusiastic about the drinks, her family’s homage products and the island! She made us dinner reservations for after the tour and sent us all the photos she took. We cannot recommend this experience more!!!

    We spent the most delightful time with Sofia at her family distillery. She arranged for transport for our group of six family members ranging in age from 25-80 years old. From the moment we stepped from the van, Sofia welcomed us and made us feel part of her family. She and the rest of her wonderful staff, were knowledgeable, friendly and lots of fun. We learned about the citron process, the citron groves and ate & drank. The appetizers were paired perfectly with the citron beverages and the personal stories were icing on the cake. If you are even considering this, you MUST do it! What a wonderful experience. Thank you, Sofia!

    Sofia and her family managed to entertain and delight my family as we learned about her family business. They take a lot of care and pride in their high quality product from the soil to the water used. Each tasting comes with a paired snack. She even managed to entertain my younger children and give them tastings of non alcoholic drinks. Thanks you for a wonderful experience!

    Patricia I loved your family. All your children were amazing. Even Alec, the youngest, was so polite and patient. We had a nice family time. Thank you for the review.

    Sofia was our Host for 2+ hours. She is a beautiful and wonderful person with a gregarious personality, and guided us through Citron, 3 wines, Ouzo, Raki and other tastings that were spectacular. Her Mother joined us at the end. I had fun siding with each’s perspectives, which were different. Sofia, with pride well earned, exhibited the wonderful characteristics of a 4th generation distillery and wine vineyard. The food provided balanced all the tasty beverages. The experience was un-paralleled ! Everything was tasty, and the fun of her presentation was superb. This is a MUST-DO experience on Naxos! Highly recommended. HI SOFIA !!

    While shopping in their amazing store right in the heart of Naxos Town, purchasing our favourite Naxaonian(?) spirit (Kitron), we saw we could arrange a tour of their family run distillery and jumped at the chance. We were able to learn the history and the process of how they make this and other drinks. Followed by a sit down tasting (VERY generous tasting) paired with amazing food. We had a great time and would recommend to anyone visiting Naxos looking for something 'off the beaten to do'. Shout out to Sofia who runs the tours of the Family business, soon to run it all I'm sure ;)

    Had the most amazing experience on the distillery tour at Promponas Distillery. From the fascinating history of the distillery and Citron to the lovely food pairings given with the different type of liquors, the tour was a memory I will carry with me for a long time - not to mention the lovely Margariti family and their endless hospitality. Both the atmosphere and the alcohol are unbelievable, a must do if you're on Naxos!

    This is one of the best experiences we have had. We were on an one-and-half hour guided tour with Sofia, who was amazing. She is not a normal guide; she is the granddaughter of the founder and has incredible stories to tell about the distillery and the food culture and agriculture related to citron. The tasting course began with their wines (red and white), moved to citron and all the different types of kitron liqueur accompanied with cheese, olives, sweets, and other local delicacies created by her mother. We ended with uzo. She showed us the citron grove next to the factory. She is most enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I recommend this highly.

    Haruo, you are such a positive and nice couple. The time with you was precious. It was our pleasure to have you in our distillery. I had a great time with you and I am glad that I met you. Hope to come again in Naxos and visit us. Many kisses from Naxos!

    Delightful experience! Sophia is the epitome of Greek hospitality. The tour around the orchard was brief, yet informative. The hands on operation of the distillery was a fun touch! There were plenty of drinks and nice nibbles for pairing with the shots. You can walk away a little tipsy best to decide in advance on a taxi or who will drive. ;) after the tour there is no pressure to buy any products, but you'll want too! We visited the store front down in the port that evening to purchase and once again found Sophia and her family welcoming and warm. They are genuinely excited to share their family business with you!

    This was our favorite part of our visit to Naxos! Sophia was so fun, she really makes the distillery tour and tasting a great experience. We tasted different kinds of citron, and also a few other liquors as well. There is also food provided to eat with the liquor that you’re tasting! We went at 10 am and it was just me, my husband, and Sophia, and even that early in the morning it was amazing!! I would definitely recommend stopping here on your visit to Naxos.

    If you want a unique, personal experience while in Naxos you have to visit the Promponas Distillery. Katerina gave us the most special, personal experience and tour of her family's orchard & distillery. We spent almost 2 hours learning about her family's history, where to go in Naxos, and the best things to do. We had the most special time with her and Julia. Thank you Katerina for your time and personal touch; you have made our time in Greece and in Naxos very special.

    We were referred to this wonderful tour and tasting by friends and are so glad we got the last 2 openings during our stay. Sofia and the entire team make you feel like a part of their family. So much love and passion for Citron making and the island of Naxos. A must do. Also be sure to visit their store near the port to take home something very special. Cannot recommend enough!
