For all of us at ilovecorfu.gr it is very important when we go on a trip abroad to try to try as many local flavors as possible. To be able to find the best products in each country we travel the easiest way is to go shopping in a supermarket. In this article we will try to list the most important products that you should try during your stay on the island of Corfu.
- Corfiot Gingerbeer
We are very happy to have this traditional English soft drink in our memory. The Corfiot version is sweeter and less spicy than the English one. But it is unique and only for that it is worth trying!
- Corfu Beer
A unique product. For us it is one of the best beers in Greece and one of the best micro breweries in Europe! It is no coincidence that it was the official beer of the London Olympics. Try the ice cream and if you have time during your stay on our island, visit the brewery in Arillas. Also, if you are on our island every October, do not miss the excellent beer festival. A wonderful celebration that lasts about a week and that every year has a different honored country.
