Old recipes, having survived and matured through the years, are the starting point for our passion; taking the finest from the past and turning it into the best of today. It is said that great things come in small packages’. We say that Great things come in Great packages’, and every detail of our offerings has been shaped through attentive consideration and thoughtful inspiration. We respect even the slightest characteristics of our products; the mixtures, the ingredients, the aromas, the packaging. Thus we offer something more than a drink; an item of artistry. Contrary to common practices, every last drop of our drinks is made with only 100% natural extracts, without any flavour essences or artificial additives. The Finest Roots philosophy is to offer true, pure and high quality tastes; derived from the past, perfected through the years and advanced for the years to come.
Mastic (or mastiha) is the resin of the native Mastic trees on Chios island. This is the only place in the world where pure mastic, the famous ‘tears of Chios’, flourishes. 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.
