Quo vadis ByRaki flavor?
ByRaki flavor was created in Greece since March 2015 with all the legitimate procedures from the competent State Services. Since 2008 with research and study in the Cretan Spirit, we have created recipes for both Cretan Raki – Tsikoudia and liqueurs. In March 2015, Cretan Raki – Tsikoudia products (38% vol alc), Rakomelo (20% vol alc) and other 12 liqueur flavors (17% & 16% vol. alc.) were ready for every consumer to taste. All these products have flavors of raw materials from the Greek countryside, such as orange, mastic, pomegranate and others.
ByRaki flavor, having recognized that businesses have responsibilities for the society, has voluntarily committed, from its first steps, to incorporating responsible entrepreneurship into its practices. The issue was and is moral to the society that is active.
