Origin of ouzo
From Greek Î¿ÏÎ¶Î¿ (oÃºzo), either from Turkish Ã¼zÃ¼m (“grape") or from the Italian uso Massalia (for use in Marseille) stamped on selected silkworm cocoons exported from Tyrnavos in the 19th century, standing for "superior quality". Other: from the ancient greek word ÏŒÎ¶Ï‰ - Î¿ÏƒÎ¼Î® (Ã³zo - osmÃ = smell) because of the strong smell of the drink.
