Mastika / Mastiha / Masticha is a liqueur made from mastic, the sap of the evergreen bush, Pistacia lentiscus on the Greek island of Chios. It is used to flavour sweets, ice creams and liqueurs and is found in cosmetics, toothpaste and even varnishes. It is believed to be very good for ulcers. The name is derived from the Greek verb ‘to chew’ or masticate as it was once used as a chewing gum, keeping teeth white and breath fresh.
