Roots Mastiha

Roots Mastiha


ABV: 28%
Pack Size: 6 x 70cl
Country of Origin: Greece

Production:
Mastic liqueur. Mastic (or mastiha) is the resin of the native Mastic trees on Chios island. This is the only place in the world where pure mastic, the famous ‘tears of Chios’, flourishes. Since the 5th century BC in Ancient Greece, Chios mastic has been referred to by notables like Herodotus and Hippocrates for its medicinal use. Once worth its weight in gold, it was used throughout the Roman and Ottoman ages as a medicine, a chewing gum, a breath freshener or simply a delight. Known even nowadays for its curative properties, Mastiha is the essence and soul of this peculiar and extraordinary liqueur.

Tasting Notes:
White, opaque in colour. The aroma is elegant and clean, shaping an overall softening and refreshing smell; subtle lavender and coconut, with the unique Mastic smell being prevalent. The flavour is soft and sweet with a microscopic suspicion of sourness. Vigorous Mastic aftertaste. Mastiha flavour is apparent and unique either straight up or mixed.
