AXIA Extra Dry Mastiha 40% 700ml

AXIA is a new twist on the traditional mastiha liqueur, made from the resin of the mastiha tree. Unlike the liqueur, AXIA is a white spirit with low sugar content and 40% ABV and is distilled to bring out notes of bergamot, cypress and rose. Much closer to a gin, it is suitable for making long-drinks and cocktails. Distilled at the Plomari Distillery on the island of Lesvos.

Axia, Chios, Aegean Islands

The resin of the evergreen Mastiha tree, found on the hillsides of Chios, has been used for millenia for its sweet and floral scent and anti-oxidant properties. It used to be worth its weight in gold during the Ottoman’s 300 year rule of Chios and generations of families continue to treasure and harvest the Mastic tree twice a year collecting resin crystals for use in food, medicine, and distilling. Axia has taken a new approach to the traditional Mastiha liqueur of the island, producing instead a completely dry, spirit-strength drink for use in cocktails the way gin might be. The mastiha crystals are blended with alcohol and twice distilled in copper stills resulting in a premium, extra dry, and unsweetened white spirit they call Axia.
