In 2013, two Greek brothers Manos and Nikolas Smyrlakis made the decision to "go back to their roots" in the oldest distillery in Greece and they created Roots – a new range of premium liqueurs. Based on time-honored liqueur recipes and rare Greek ingredients, the collection includes Roots Rakomelo, Roots Mastic, Roots Kanela, and Roots Diktamo as well as Roots Divino; two non-alcoholic craft aperitifs. All Roots liqueurs are handcrafted and made with ancient herbs, all sourced sustainably in Greece, to bring to the world traditional Greek spirits in an exciting new form. Today, Roots liqueurs can be found in the best bars in London, Athens, Rome, and Paris with each spirit telling its own story.

Roots Mastic takes you on a journey to the Greek island of Chios, the only island where the mastic resin, also called the "Tears of Chios", grow on mastic trees. Based on a centuries-old recipe from Greece, Roots Mastic is a modern interpretation of a traditional spirited liqueur that contains mastic distillate. Famed since the 5th century BC for its beneficial digestive properties by Herodotus and Hippocrates, it was later cherished by the Romans and it remains a precious delicacy still today. Bottled at a very pleasant 56 proof, Roots Mastic offers an elegant and clean nose with refreshing lavender and coconut aromas while the palate is soft and sweet. The distinct mastic aftertaste will take your senses straight to this picturesque island in the Aegean Sea. Best served cold with a fresh lime slice or mixed with tonic.
