Premium Greek Sipping Vodka // Set of 2 // 750 ml Each
Family-owned and artisan crafted in Greece, Kástra Elión is the newly-launched, original premium sipping vodka distilled from Greek olives. Three generations in the making, it combines tradition, innovation, and a love for the flavors and heritage of the Mediterranean. Sipped neat, over rocks, or chilled for the perfect martini, enjoy Kástra Elión for every “Opa!” moment.
While most vodkas are made with just grain, Kástra Elión is distilled from the finest hand-picked olives found in the Nafpaktos region of Greece, creating a flavor profile with subtle notes of ripe olives refined with peppery undertones and a soft, buttery finish.
Once the olives have been hand-picked, they are blended with a curated mix of grains, then mixed with mineral-rich spring water from the Crystalline Rock in Mount Taygetus (the highest peak in Southern Greece). This allows the vodka to breathe and open up an intoxicating complexity and aroma. After a 30-day resting period allowing the vodka to further smoothen, it is bottled and ready to enjoy.
While the distillation process is similar to that of traditional vodka made with grains and potatoes, the difference lies in the way that Kástra Elión prepares and blends its olives. With a completely different sensory profile and smoother finish than many grain or potato-based vodkas, Kástra Elión has an initial sweet taste followed by a more complex, full-bodied, buttery-fruity finish with slightly spicy undertones. Although it is made with olives, there is only a hint of olive flavor in the final product.
The name Kástra Elión comes from the Greek words for castle (kastro) and olives (elión, derivative of eliás). The ancient Nafpaktos castle stands as guardian to the region’s hills and olive groves and is the brand’s ancestral home, protecting the rich heritage of the city below. The olives, or elión, are an enduring symbol of peace and abundance, and are deeply intertwined with Greek culture and iconic mythology.
