About
Get in contact with us, to share our 122 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.

Cannot recommend this shop enough
What an absolutely wonderful experience. Nina is steeped in her family history, beyond generous, and the liqueurs are amazing. I can't say enough positive things about this shop/tasting. If you are in Athens, make sure you make the time to stop by!

A delicious place to visit!
Aug 2021
Polykala Distillery was a highlight of the Athens food tour I did in August 2021. The host was very sweet and gave an amazing history of her family's distillery. She was also very generous with the tasting part of the tour and we truly wanted to buy everything. It was seriously all delicious! Thank you for such a great experience!

So much fun tasting liqueurs!
My 22 year old daughter and I had a blast at this distillery on food tour with guide Georgia! Our Polykala hostess was a lot of fun. We drank, laughed, sang, and had a great time. So many varieties - rose, chocolate, coffee, red berry - loved them all! 💙

food tour with liqueur tasting
Oct 2019
We stopped at Polykala for a tasting which was the highlight of our food tour. Everything we tasted was very good...surprisingly since I generally don't care for the sweet stuff. We all bought several bottles to take home.
Our delightful host mentioned a chicken recipe using the cherry liqueur but I couldn't locate it at the suggested karamanlidikagr site.
Fun event and something very different.

Hello Alexis!! You are very sweet!! Thank you for liking our products and being a nice surprise on your tour. We really appreciate your nice words and happy that you took a sweet memory home. However I had a look at the site you mentioned but I could not find something as well. A tip I can give you: Just add about 10ml of cherry liqueur within the roast chicken sauce. Hope to see u again!!
