The Abelon story begins at my family's vineyards in Nea Gonia, Greece, back in 1987, where the Kazakis House of Viticulture was born. I will always remember the time that the whole family was planting and watering our first vines.
In the following years, I was initiated in the secrets of fine distillation by my father, Demetrius. I was introduced to the fascinating cosmos of spirit aging and - inspired by the view of the Aegean Sea and Mount Olympus - I decided to take a leap forward by creating something unique.
Abelon is a 100% certified organic distillate of a single variety of grapes - hand harvested in 2016 - and produced in micro-distillery controlled environment for optimum fermentation and distillation results.
Twice distilled in copper alembic stills and aged - for more than 3 years - in new French oak casks, tailored to my requirements by expert craftsmen of exquisite tonnelleries in Central France, and in perfect humidity and temperature conditions, resulting in unparalleled flavor and aroma.
I open every cask separately, after meticulously examining its sensory attributes. The spirit of each cask is bottled unfiltered, proofed down to 48% Vol. and after a minimum of 6 months maturation. Each bottle is sealed with a pure Portuguese cork and crowned by an engraved golden ring and our family's crest. A testimony of our dedication to excellence.
This premium and authentic organic distillate is a limited edition with a single number marked on each bottle, coming from a single cask and a single variety of organic grapes.
