Yes, it seems to be a normal offer for Tesco, I always have some in the fridge, and a couple of large Mythos glasses in the freezer, ready for dreaming of Plakias.
I have also seen the same deal in Morrisons.

Good stuff, but wouldn't be the same. Back in late May, can't wait for the real McCoy!
Cheers, Rich

I have bad news folks - Tesco has stopped selling Mythos !!!! I cannot find it at our local, and there is no mention on the Tesco website. Morrisons have also stopped, so the only option is Adnams brewery, but it is expensive plus delivery costs. Not sure I want to pay their price. My search will continue, and if I have any news I will post here. Likewise if anyone else has a ling, please post.
PS Bargain Booze list Mythos, but I am hard pressed to find a Bargain Booze shop, their website is out of date, and some shops that list are now closed!

PPS Fix is also wonderful, so any retail outlet selling Fix will get my custom as well.

Most places have stopped selling Retsina too. The only one I can find is Sainsbury's which is twelve miles away.

Fancy a Mythos?

It's a bit sad if people are reporting that they can't find Greek products at home when Greece needs every euro in foreign exchange. Hope it's only temporarily in respect of beer and wine. I got a very nice little 500 mil tin of Kalamata olive oil in my local co - op this week, for a reasonable 4.99!

Mythos is definitely available from Bargain Booze. A family member has just emptied the Bath store of Mythos, 500ml. for me!
http://www.bargainbooze.co.uk/
Same price as the Tesco offer, 3 for 5.

Now to start my search for Fix!

For those of you who live in the north west, Booths supermarkets sell Mythos.

With respect to comment above (robludlow), it might be both Grecophilic and cheaper to order Greek stuff online from Greece. 'Win-win' if you're into corporate BS, but a good thing anyhow.

I prefer to enjoy my Greek food and drink in Greece, and Plakias/surrounds in partiular, but all the same... Any thoughts peeps?

Mythos is back on the shelves at Tesco, 3 for 5 again, and using the new strip top bottle, brewed in Greece, never been brewed over here.
Now all we need is the sun (we have the strong winds already!)
