Skinos 750 ml Bottle from A. Hardy USA
-- The country of Greece is known for the Olympics, the Parthenon, and hundreds of scenic islands. But outside of Greece little was known about the Mastiha tree. The Mastiha shrub grows throughout the Mediterranean but only the trees on the island of Chios weep the resin from which the legendary mastic spice is obtained. A. Hardy USA has just introduced Skinos, a unique new liqueur made from Mastiha that is imported directly from Greece and is now available in the United States for the very first time.
The word "Skinos" is the ancient name for Mastiha. Skinos liqueur is flowery and lightly sweet. Its appearance is similar to Ouzo but it tastes nothing like it. "Mixologists wanting to create totally new cocktails should try Skinos in their drink recipes," said Mark Levinson, President of A. Hardy USA. Skinos can be kept in the freezer and consumed ice cold, in a shot glass with a wedge of tangerine or mixed in a cocktail. Skinos is best enjoyed slowly and savored.
Skinos is packaged in 750 ml glass bottles and is available nationally at fine liquor stores. Average retail price is $33.99. For more information about Skinos contact A. Hardy USA, 1400 E. Touhy Avenue, Suite 120, Des Plaines, IL 60018. Call (847) 298-2358, email: email@example.com or view the company's web site at: ahardyusa.com
