In Syros Island, the heart of the Cyclades group of islands, taste the famous Syros Loukoumi. Loving and respecting his legacy, Syros gets inspiration from the long history of loukoumi and experiments with flavours. Thus, marrying the loukoumi delight with chocolate, with honey and almonds, with cinnamon, mandarin orange, bergamot orange, ouzo, banana, fig and so many others, we proudly present more than 25 different tasteful experiences. Blending pure ingredients with traditional recipes and modern open mind we make halva, we create nougats with fresh roasted almonds, pasteli (sesame bars) with local thyme honey, mastic pies with mastic.
