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

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.
