The Spirit Goddesses
This package celebrates two Greek American female entrepreneurs who are disrupting the spirits industry
Founder: Effie Panagopoulos - Boston
Created by the first Greek woman in history to found a spirit brand, and made by Greece’s first known female distiller.
KLEOS Mastiha Spirit is Greece’s first luxury spirit brand, the world’s first super-premium mastiha liqueur.
The raw ingredient, Mastiha (mas-tee-hah) is a sap from the ‘Skinos’ tree that grows only in 24 villages in the southern part of the Greek island of Chios.
Mastiha is known as the ‘diamond of spices’ because of its rarity, and the ancient world‘s ‘super ingredient’ due to its variety of healing properties, and has the honor of being the world’s first chewing gum.
KLEOS is made by hand in small batches, via a distillation of the rare Mastiha ‘tears’ and the addition of Mastiha essential oils.
Balanced enough to be consumed on the rocks with a wedge of lemon, and the ultimate cocktail ingredient!
It mixes 1:1 with every base spirit on your backbar and a myriad of fruits and herbs.
Created by Effie Panagopoulos, the first Greek woman (and Boston woman) in history to found a spirit brand, and made by Greece’s first known female distiller.
