MASTIQUA means mastiha + aqua. Refreshing aromas of cucumber, citrus, and of course, mastiha. No sugar is used. It's hard to find the right words to describe the taste because the mastiha itself is so unique, but the refreshing bitterness gives it a clean aftertaste. The refreshing and crisp taste does not interfere with the taste of any food. It is also a good choice after sports or yoga. It can also be used as carbonated water for long cocktails.
This is a recommended product that has the highest repeat customer rate among all OINOS products.
It is also refreshing to use it to float thinly peeled cucumbers with a peeler.
Since around 600 B.C., mastiha has been known as a natural food with various benefits, such as promoting digestion. Mastiha is made from the sap of the Mastiha tree, which is a mysterious tree found only on the volcanic island of Hios in the eastern Mediterranean. The ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Genoese, and Ottomans spread it around the world, and it became widely known as a food native to the Mediterranean. Hippocrates, the founder of medicine, is said to have once used a mixture of mastiha and honey to treat stomachaches and colds. Even today, mastiha is widely used in Greece for chewing gum and ice cream, and various scientific papers have been published on its oral care and digestive benefits. The sap of the mastiha tree is carefully harvested by skilled harvesters according to a long tradition. The yield from a single mastiha tree is approximately 80 to 2,000 grams per year.
The sap from the mastiha tree is used to make the mastiha.

Our commitment to OINOS products
Whether it is a reliable product, an interesting product,
and whether the product is rooted and loved in the area....
We select our products with these considerations in mind.
We select products based on these important factors. We actually visit the site, talk with the creator, face to face, and select only what we think is authenticーー
I think this is much more interesting than chasing temporary fads.
