Pioneering Greeks: George Nikiforos, Founder of ‘ByRaki’ Flavor Spirits

Welcome to “Pioneering Greeks”, the column of GTP Headlines, which highlights the Greeks that stand out for their creative thinking in the business world. “Pioneering Greeks” is a collaboration between and Greek Travel Pages (GTP).

This week we introduce George Nikiforos, founder of ByRaki, a crystal clear grape spirit named tsikoudia, enriched with flavors from all over Greece, aiming to introduce the public to more special tastes.

In 2008 Nikiforos had the idea to get involved with spirits and liqueurs and in 2015 he found the strength to establish the ByRaki flavor company. His goal was to initiate the audience into the flavors he had created up to then.

The inspiration came from the traditional liqueurs, which are combined with the products of the Greek countryside.

Byraki flavor is divided into three categories. The first category is the classic tsikoudia or Cretan raki with high alcohol content. The second category is the classic traditional liqueurs with flavors from all over Greece, such as pomegranate, mastic, bergamot etc. The third category combines the traditional with the classic and creates flavors for different ways of serving and special tastes, such as watermelon, chocolate, caramel and others.

The main goal is to establish the Byraki flavor, both in the Greek market and abroad, as a Greek product with special flavors and a special character.

Inspired by the dynamism and creativity of the Greek entrepreneurial spirit, LoveGreece was founded in 2013 as an initiative to boost and promote the country’s image abroad by profiling talented and successful Greeks. With their ethos and vision, Greece’s entrepreneurs and professionals are an important aspect of the country worth highlighting to the world. LoveGreece is powered by Gina Mamidaki, the founder of the G & A Mamidakis Foundation.
