Regular price $34.95

Skinos Mastiha Spirit regards itself as the "truly Mediterranean spirit." The spirit has its founding in 10th century BCE as a Greek cure for intestinal problems and breath freshening. It was known as Mastiha and later referred to as skinos. Mastiha is actually the resin from a particular tree that is obtained by pricking the bark and collecting the sap as it runs out... for this reason, it is call "the crying tree." The mastiha is macerated in grain alcohol, then blended with sugar and mineral water before bottling. Its long history of use as therapeutic survives to this day where the University of Nottingham claimed it can cure peptic ulcers.nbsp;
