The most popular theory is that the word ouzo comes from the Italian phrase "Uso di Massalia," which means "used in Marseille.
Marseille was one of the first places where Greece exported silk, and the
boxes of silk sent there were marked with the words "Uso di Massalia ".
One day, a certain monarch who was drinking anise distillate loved the taste and
exclaimed, "This is
Uso di Massalia," indicating that it was equal in
quality to the product sent to Marseille.
A variety of flavors are hidden
One of the most distinctive elements of ouzo is that it changes color when it comes into contact with water.
This "emulsion" is derived from the essential oil of anise. When water is added, the temperature of the distillate is lowered and the alcohol content is also lowered.
As a result, the essential oil, which was previously hidden in the distillate, appears and changes color.
Please enjoy the time spent watching the colorless ouzo slowly turn into a grayish milky white as water and ice are added.
