An ancient Liqueur made from the resin of a rare island tree in the Aegean Sea has been brought back… and you must experience it for yourself.

Pireas is a port city within the Athens administration area. It’s the perfect place to be if you are Concepts Trade and Marketing. They specialize in distributing Spirits in Greece — including some of the most famous brands of Whiskey, Gin, Beer, Rum, Aperitifs, and regional favorites. They also own three brands of very special Greek Spirits that they export around the world.

There are literally thousands of island in Aegean Sea of the eastern Mediterranean. On island of Chios — just offshore from Turkey — grows a rare tree prized for the mastic resins that weep from the bark.

Skinos Mastiha Spirit is a clear Liqueur made by infusing the mastic resins into a Spirit base and sweetening with natural sugars. The flavor profile exists in between a Vermouth and a Gin with bitter-sweet notes of scrub-pine and herbaceous wormwood. It pairs well with savory meats when served chilled and can be sipped as an accompaniment to dessert. All other comparisons fail, it must be experienced.

Smartass Corner:
The resin of the Mastic tree — Pistacia lentiscus — has been used as a medicinal, flavoring, teeth whitener, and digestif for more than 2500 years. The resin is also known as Masique, Mashtiha, Skinos, and The Tears of Chios.

Like sipping an evergreen, in a good way. Introduced to this liqueur at the Liberty Hotel a few years ago in Boston, MA via the Tears of Chios cocktail. It’s sweet, but if you like pine flavor I general this is a great mixer. It is possible to be enjoyed by itself but pretty sugary on its own, and generally plays nice with other ingredients (even just tonic water and ice).
