Century after century, the mastiha trees of southern Chios slowly have been shedding their fragrant tears on the island’s soil just as they’ve been doing since Homeric times. The precious drops of mastiha resin, which flow only from the trunks and branches of the mastiha trees on Chios, have been famous for centuries for their rare, aromatic bouquet which is as powerful as it is refreshing.
Stoupakis Chios Distillery gathers all of the historical goodness of Chios mastic in one superb and rare distillate: “HOMERIC” Mastiha Liqueur. Tenderly embraced by tradition, “HOMERIC” Mastiha Liqueur retains all of the mastic’s unique traits unaltered. For rare, unforgettable moments of traditional pleasure try your “HOMERIC” Mastiha Liqueur on ice or in an imaginative cocktail.
|Located on the island of Chios, the Stoupakis has been distilling spirits since 1896 in small quantities for friends & family. In 2008, the family distillery was modernized and the company built a new facility to distil and produce Homericon Masticha, a liqueur made with Mastic tree resin and Kazanisto Ouzo. Mastiha is an excellent ingredient for specialty cocktails as it adds a wonderful herbal note and pairs exceptionally well with gin.
