Designed by Marios Karystios | Country: Cyprus

“Manousakis Winery releases Tsikoudia, a distillate made from the marc of their Roussanne grapes and only drunk by the mighty! Tsikoudia has a long standing history in Crete and is used not only as an aperitif, but also for it’s healing powers that locals believe it has. Traditionally, most households produce this strong spirit and enjoy it either at room temperature or directly from the freezer.

The packaging is inspired by old style pharmaceutical bottles enclosing this mysterious liquid that has been more or less a local secret for thousands of years. The label portrays the Minotaur planting a labyrinth vineyard and wearing the traditional Cretan costume.”

Terroir

Designed by Marios Karystios | Country: Cyprus

“Alexandra Manousakis left the U.S. back in 2007 to manage her family winery in the island of Crete. Her admiration for Crete, a magical place, rich in history and natural beauty, made her conceive a selection of local products under the name of Terroir, a line of products that serves as a showcase of Cretan nature as well as its unique and unforgettable terroir.

The approach on the design was influenced by Alexandra’s simplicity  in character and her love for supporting local communities and charities. Each bottle of the olive oil and sea salt jar, is handmade by a local ceramist, and a percentage of the profits is donated to ELEPAP, a very special school for children with disabilities.”
