The Mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus var. Chia) is an evergreen shrub, of 2-3 meters height. Its life span is more tha 100 years. The "kentima," as the carving of the small scars on the bark is called, is the most crucial stage in mastiha production. It is done with the help of a small sharp metal tool with grooved ends. Mastiha is gathered before the first autumn rain and the cleaning and sorting begin. Large and medium sized mastiha tears are cleaned one by one with a knife or a needle.
This is an elegant and aromatic mastic spirit liqueur with a sweet and refreshing aftertaste.
