Ouzo of Chios


Mastic: It is cultivated in 21 mastic villages in the southern Chios. This tree has streched out branches and a wrinkled barks on its trunk where the mastic is taken. Mastic is the main product of Chios' economy. It is exported to Arabic countries. Herodotes mentioned mastic in the 5th century BC although the date is not exactly known when it became popular to cultivate it.

Mastic is not only delicious but also healthy as it absorbs cholesterol, it is antibacterial, an oral antiseptic, helps digestion and also helps to cure stomach ulcers.

Mastic is used to produce mastic liqueur and a mastic-flavoured ouzo called mastichato. It is also used in biscuits, ice cream and sweets and in toothpaste, shampoos, perfumes and varnish.

Kendos is the traditional way of cultivating the mastic. It takes a lot of time, lots of work and many people. It begins in June and ends at the end of September.

Ouzo: It is the traditional Greek drink. The ingredients are aniseed, fennel, cilantro and the mastic. If you mix ouzo with water it tastes less strong and easily drinken. It is mostly prefered and served with seafood and mezedes.

Fruits: Especially citrus fruits are among the characteristics of the island therefore the island is also called as myrovolos which means fragrant. The island is full of orange and tangerine orchards. Tangerines are collected in November and oranges are collected in December.
