Fokiali – Another Mellow Roditiko Ouzo

“Mellowing out” is not exactly what the bustling, “party” island of Rhodes is known for, but when it comes to its ouzo – there’s a pattern here…

Much like Rodini, Ouzo Fokiali, another local Rhodian delight, is smooth, mellow, and refreshing.

There is nothing overpowering about this ouzo. It is aromatic, with an understated anise taste and aftertaste, and should be enjoyed with spicy, pungent mezedes, to contrast its restrained flavor.

At the standard 80 proof, this ouzo can transport you into a pleasant state of mind rather quickly, so, like the Rodini, don’t be fooled into throwing caution to the wind as you consume it.

For those who enjoy only a hint of anise flavoring, Fokiali won’t disappoint you. Also, it leaves less sugary residue in your glass than some of the acclaimed ouzo champs, like Barbagianni.

Besides, when in Rhodes, why not support the local economy? For less than ten bucks a bottle, this option is an inexpensive way to enjoy your afternoon veranda ouzo/mezedes ritual.
