Vallindras: "Naxos Kitron" Naxos Island Shopping Tip by snorril
Naxos Island Shopping: 12 reviews and 16 photos
Vallindras is a distillery in the town of Halki. It was established in 1896 and is still run by the same family. We decided to visit the distillery and got a free guided tour with a lovely member of the family.
What to buy: Kitron is a Naxos speciality, made from the leaves of the Kitron tree (which also produces a fruit, the kitron, which they use for marmelade). There are three kinds of Kitron and they have different colours. They are yellow, green and white/clear.
Kitron is hard to find outside Naxos so it makes an excellent souvenir or gift.
Directions: Vallindras is located at a square in Halki, near the bakery and a lovely restaurant.
