Local Products
Lesvos actually is a blessed Aegean Island; its land is very fertile and its products are renowned globally. The most remarkable Lesvos’ products are the following:  

Ouzo
Ouzo is a drink that is part of the island’s tradition, since its residents  have always connected ouzo with social life. Drinking ouzo is always accompanied by eating certain light dishes, called ‘ouzomezedes”. More info on the worldwide famous ouzo of Lesvos is available at www.ouzoland.gr.

Oil
No other Aegean Island presents both the quality and quantity of olive oil Lesvos does. Lesvos’ oil has a unique taste and texture and a very high nutritional value due to the elevated unsaturation of fatty acids!

Wine
The wine of Lesvos is called “Methymnaion” and it is exclusively produced in the area of the Petrified Forest at Sigri. In the ancient years the wine of Lesvos was the most expensive one in Greece! Today the red and white wines produced on the island still preserve their unique taste and aroma.

Cheeses
The most famous cheese of Lesvos are gruyere and ladotyri. Lesvos’ gruyere is a hard cheese with a mild sweet taste, whereas ladotyri is totally one-of-a-kind, consisting in a hard cheese with a pretty spicy flavour. Both are not only to be tasted on the island, but also to be brought home!  

Olives
There are three different kinds of olives in Lesvos: ksydates, ksyralates and tsakistes. All three kinds have more than 25% oil content and they are really tasty and nutritious!

Morsels (Salted seafood)
Morsels (salted seafood) are very often consumed with ouzo, so this probably explains why they are so popular on the island. Lesvos is globally renowned for the kalloni sardins and for its anchovies.  

Bakery products
Visitors will find here amazing bakery products that are produced by the women association according to completely traditional procedures. Even pasta is locally produced this way!

Almond macaroons
