THE WORKSHOP

The Aristokratikon workshop on Isavron Street at the foot of Lycabetus hill is all you have ever imagined of the traditional workshops of the greatest chocolate producers.
As you approach the entrance, you are pleasantly lured by the intoxicating aroma of chocolate and tradition. But once within, you find yourself in the future, more specifically in the future of handmade chocolate.
Twenty-one technicians work like bees, mixing chocolate, preparing creams, caramelizing pistachios and packing them into special boxes.  All our chocolates are delivered to our stores for sale on the very same day they are created.
The cellar is a real treasury: huge chocolate bars, crates with all sorts of nuts and dried fruit, and barrels of fermenting sherry.
The chocolate fantasy reaches its apogee as we climb the steps to the offices of Aristokratikon. All the walls are decorated with enlarged pictures of our chocolate masterpieces.  Amongst them, the first prize for the 1939 International Exhibition hangs with pride.
Another indication of the weight tradition carries in Aristokratikon is the history of the building itself.  It was the Bitsopoulos family home where George Bitsopoulos grew up.  He renovated the residence and adapted it to the requirements of the workshop and offices, for in here the guiding memories of his forefathers live on. Here resides the spirit of the elixir of the gods, of pure chocolate.
