Greece cornered the market on feta production in the EU, now, they officially have the right to ouzo production. Brand protection seems to be a rather hot topic in the EU, with similar rulings being passed for champagne in France. Now I'm know there are plenty of dissenters about such things, but these types of things that come from traditional cultures in the EU deserve such protections. Besides, if you ever drink ouzo, you always assume it comes from Greece. At least I always did. There is an expectation there.
Yia mas to Greece for earning the exclusive rights to ouzo. May you drink it well.
