ouzo (n.)

type of liquor flavored with aniseed, 1898, from Modern Greek ouzo, which is of uncertain origin. "A popular etymology" [OED] is that it derives from Italian uso Massalia, literally "for Marsailles," which was stamped on selected packages of silkworm cocoons being shipped from Thessaly, and came to be taken for "of superior quality."
