In 1967, seventeen family ouzo producers agreed to join forces to form Mytilene Distilleries to make and sell a brand of ouzo, ‘Mini’. In 1996 Pernod Ricard purchased 95% of the company, leaving just 5% in the hands of the 17 founder families. Epom is now one of the largest ouzo distillers in Greece

The recipe combines aromatic herbs from Lesvos with aniseed from Lisborio and these are distilled along with mastic from the island of Chios in traditional copper pot stills.
