Axia Spirit: Celebrate National Cocktail Day with these Dreamy Serves

Thursday 21st Mar 2024 |


Axia is a refreshing, botanically complex, extra-dry 40% ABV spirit. With its crisp, extra dry profile, it is perfectly suited to classic cocktails, long drinks, or on the rocks – the ultimate spirit for National Cocktail Day on Sunday 25th March.

Axia takes the millennia-old rules of Mastiha-making, and artfully twists them, aligning seamlessly with the spirit of our times. Distilled from the aromatic resin of the Mastiha tree, a gnarled and twisted evergreen found clutching to the hillsides of the Aegean island Chios, Greece, Axia is a new-to world, premium, extra dry Mediterranean spirit.

Nose: An immediate fresh, botanical aroma with hints of citrus, pink roses and the herbal notes of green peppercorns balanced by the earthiness of Mediterranean cypress.


Taste: Initially fresh with notes of pine, the taste is reminiscent of coastal Mediterranean forests. The earthier botanicals are balanced with the citrus bitterness of grapefruit.


Finish: A soothing roundness of bergamot delivering a soft and velvety mouthfeel.
