Meet Markos. Born of a Greek mother and an Irish father, he grew up in the Cretan village of Asimi. Located north of the Asterousia mountain range most of the people in his village cultivated olive trees and vines. His memories are filled with stories of olive trees, grapes, and a raki distillery. It's Markos' heritage you're contributing to when purchasing from E.thos of Crete. His dream is to share all the beautiful qualities of the largest island of Greece, Crete.
