A fortuitous experiment with mastic gum led us to this surprising, enticing, fragrant gin. We use cold and pot distillation to harness pine notes of Greek mastic gum, paired with a bouquet of aromatic botanicals.
What is mastic?
The northern Greek island of Chios is the only place where the mastic tree grows. From ancient times, the mastic tree’s sap has bestowed good fortune and prosperity on the island’s people, celebrated for its uniqueness, rarity and diverse uses, in cooking and spirits. We chose to use mastic as it’s high in alpha-pinene – just like juniper – offering a musky and pine-like taste. Perfect for gin.
How to serve?
Over ice with a premium tonic and spruce it up with a fresh slice of lemon.
This sprightly gin’s mastic pine notes are complemented by aromatic juniper, angelica root, rosemary, bay leaf and Australian lemon myrtle.
