Ancient traditions are at the heart of Axia’s distilling methods as they use the resin of the evergreen Mastiha tree, which is found in the hillsides of Chios, Greece. Mastic resin is shrouded in history as it used to be traded for its sweet and floral scent and anti-oxidant qualities. It used to be worth its own weight in gold during the Ottoman’s 300 year rule of Chios. Generations of families continue to treasure and harvest the Mastic tree twice a year collecting resin crystals ready to be shipped to the Plomari distillery. These crystals are lovingly blended with alcohol and twice distilled in copper stills, and the result is a premium, extra dry and unsweetened white spirit that we call Axia.
