This distinctive taste and exceptional aroma earned Skinos the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Awards in 2011.
Skinos is the ancient name for Mastiha. The remarkable flavor of this clear spirit is hard to describe: it smells like a sun-drenched rocky Mediterranean hillside covered in wild herbs, like crushed juniper berries and fresh-torn spearmint leaves, like the hauntingly deep aromas of rain-soaked cedar wood and violet essential oil.
It is gently sweet yet refreshing, fulsome yet delicate, and its balance makes Skinos highly versatile. It can be served neat, chilled, as an aperitif or digestif, or used in innovative cocktails or as a flavor enhancer in the kitchen with fish and other foods for a distinctly Mediterranean twist.
