Axia Extra Dry Mastiha



Product description

Axia is a clear, refreshing, and extra-dry Mastiha – pronounced “Mas-teek-a” spirit distilled from the resin of the Mastiha tree found on the Greek Island of Chios. In a centuries-old, artisanal tradition, the sap is milked from the tree and left to dry in the wind. The crystals are then harvested, cleaned by hand, and shipped to the Plomari distillery. Here they are twice distilled in a process that combines the age-old art of the hand-crafted copper still with the cutting-edge science of the Master Distiller and her team.
