The Lesvos based Distillery of Giannatsi, wanting to utilize the goods of the Aegean island of Lesvos, proceeded to the production of castanelli liqueur, from chestnuts produced in the area of ??Agiasos, a small mountain village at the center of the island.
The chestnut kernel is baptized in ouzo from the village Plomari and the honey from our island is added last. Immediately after, they are distilled to produce the liqueurs.
After the distance it remains in stainless steel tanks, until it is bottled. Bright on the face, with an attractive color and intense aromatic profile.
And some historical facts
In the shadow of Olympus mountain (a mountain at the center of the island) at an altitude of 700 meters, the Romans planted the first chestnut field 2.000 years ago. And this field slowly spread to 10,000 acres, reaching Megalochori village
And at spring, when the chestnut trees bloom their yellow blossom, beekeepers bring and spread their hives into the field ...

When the chestnuts, the beekeeper, the woodcarver and the distiller worker cooperated, they were able to compose this excellent handmade lesbian drink and made us all proud
