Since the 5th century BC in Ancient Greece, Chios mastic has been referred to by notables like Herodotus and Hippocrates for its medicinal use. Once worth its weight in gold, it was used throughout the Roman and Ottoman ages as a medicine, a chewing gum, a breath freshener or simply a delight. Known even nowadays for its curative properties, Mastiha is the essence and soul of this peculiar and extraordinary liqueur.
