Product of: Greece
A modern presentation of a traditional Greek liqueur. Roots Mastiha is flavoured with mastic, a semi-transparent resinous sap gathered from the evergreen Lentisk bush. While the shrub grows elsewhere in the Mediterranean it only sheds resinous ‘tears’ on the tiny Greek island of Chios.
Review and Tasting

Clean, pronounced mastic with hints of pine sap and very faint desiccated coconut.
Syrupy and clean with minty, pine and aniseed cleansing freshness.
Lingering spearmint-like freshness.
