Overview
Get in contact with us, to share our 125 years story. A Greek family distillery that started in Kefallonia island and moved in Athens.

The store is based at the same street where the 2nd and 3rd Generation established the Polykala Distillery.

The modern era finds the Polykalas distillery, in Athens. Rena, fourth generation of distillers, along with her father Giorgos, goes on producing alcoholic drinks with a huge enthusiasm and passion, for a customer network that now covers all Greece.The secret recipes of liqueurs of the great grandfather V. Polykalas are used with the same dedication and they are baptized “1897 Polykalas Collection”, they are combined with the modern times, the flavours evolve and take off, the packages are replaced with new luxurious bottles, new products and proposals appear and the name Polykalas has become synonym with quality and good taste.
With the ticket you get a 100ml liquer bottle.
LET'S GET TOGETHER for a liqueur tasting.

Such a wonderful experience! Nina is so lovely, and it was truly amazing to hear all about the 125+ years history of this beautiful distillery. I highly recommend to anyone visiting Athens, you won’t regret :) You also get a 100ml liqueur free of charge, in a flavour of your choice!

We had a liquor tasting as part of an Athens food tour and this was the undoubted highlight. Our host was ultra friendly and informative, couldn't have been more helpful and had some much knowledge to share. I almost guarantee you'll find a flavour you like and will leave the shop having purchased something. Great fun as well.

The owner made us feel so welcome from the beginning and it was the one of the highlights of our trip! Also, all of the flavors we tried were delicious and reasonably priced! Our favorites were lemon, red berries, chocolate, and original.
