History

 

 

Those years, Panagiotis Vantana’s drinks such as ouzo, raki, vermout, rum, brandy, mavrodaphne, liqueurs such as banana, rose, peppermint, mastic, mandarin, benedictine and especially tentoura in the area of western Greece, the Peloponnese and the Ionian islands were blooming and loved by consumers.

 

 

A characteristic of the time is the wholesale of wooden barrels and weighing in ‘oka’ and ‘dramia’. Bottling in glass bottles and labeling was done manually.

Panagiotis Vantanas learned the secrets of the drinks when he was working as a boy at the distillery "The Sun" by Charalambous Varimbopi.

 

 

 

As soon as he felt that his forces were capable of doing so, he undertook the establishment of his own Distillery in the Markato area of ​​Patras. Distribution and sale at that time were mostly in bulk packages such as wooden barrels of various contents and less in packaged bottles. In addition to the excellent drinks, the glass bottles also featured the labels as well as the artistic work of the printers of the time, and nowadays they are works of art.

At that time, the Markato of Patras was the main craft and commercial area of ​​Patras and Achaia in general. All the inhabitants of Achaia and neighboring counties arrived there to supply various products and mainly food and drinks.

For a short time he worked with another distiller Stathatos, but during World War II the distillery business stopped.

Thus, he continued to produce small quantities on his own, given the conditions of war and famine.

At the end of the war, the passion of drinking making was still there and the distillery was slowly restarted at Gerokostopoulou 48 Street.

In 1950 he produced an excellent Tentoura recipe for his friends and demanding customers who wanted something special. After the death of Panagiotis Vantana, the distillery continued to operate by his wife, Vantana Polyxeni, who knew the art, in his later years.

 

 

 

The tradition and love of drink making continued with the passing of the second generation, his daughter Pigi and his son-in-law Elias Tzoudas who continued to operate the distillery. In 1978 the distillery was moved to a new privately owned production site in Lefka Patras, maintaining the store at 48 Gerokostopoulou Street in Markato as a retail outlet.

Production, distillation, bottling of products was now taking place in this new area, which helped the company to significantly increase production volumes and to be able to dispose of its products throughout Greece and export some of them in Italy, Germany and France. In 1989 the business passed on to the third generation of the family to brothers George and Panagiotis Tzoudas, grandsons of Panagiotis Vantana, who grew up "in the distillery".

In 1999, the distillery expanded to a new private 4,000-square-foot plot in the Platanovrisi area of ​​Patra Achaia, renowned for its quality water, which originates from the mountains of Erymanthos. Water that has unique properties and proper salts and minerals.

Now operating in a modern production - distillation - bottling plant, complying with building & engineering specifications and complying with European Union regulations and guidelines in the beverage industry, the company is developing new products and new packaging distributing throughout Greece as well as exporting to larger quantities and in more overseas countries.

 

 

Vantana Distillery - Distillery continues today to combine the traditional way of making alcoholic beverages by extraction or distillation, with the latest technology in their standardization.

The company applies ISO 22000 KAI HACCP certified system.
