Made to Perfection
It’s a long journey to perfection.
First, the master distiller turns to the Chios Mastiha Growers Association to source the prized “tears” of 100% pure, natural mastiha resin. Once he has acquired the rare ingredient, the exacting execution of the secret recipe begins with distillation in traditional copper stills.
This process yields a clear distillate that, once watered down to reach 26% alc/vol, is combined with sugar, per the traditional formula.
It is this unique combination that makes Stichion so different and bestows rich aroma, balanced sweetness, and robust, full body with a creamy, generous texture.
