Bella Vista by Tasos Mposkos

Bella Vista(Name inspired from one of the most famous and beautiful beaches of Chios)

Greece indeed has a very rich tradition of flavours & aromas. But also greek nature has an incredible variety of indigenous and special ingredients. Given this, Roots have their ‘roots’ on old greek recipes and unique ingredients from the greek nature

One of these liqueurs that gives us the "Roots" is the Mastic of Chios. The Mastic of Chios is a tree that grows exclusively in Chios and is known for its particular and unique flavor and aroma. At the hearing of Mastic of Chios, comes in my mind my childhood that I loved to chew gum and my mother brought me Mastic of Chios after her work because she knew I liked it very much. I could chew Mastic of Chios all day, every day. As a child, however, and only a few hours after that unique flavor and sweetness of Mastic was lost, I threw it and ate a new one so I could relive this experience. Beyond these memories of my childhood and my mother, Mastic of Chios for me means those cold shots at the beach bars and refreshing cocktails on hot summer days on the beaches that I used to have in Greece. Been inspired from the summer life in Greece and my mother's favourite drink, I have maden for you this wine base cocktail. The Mastic of Chios happens to be one of my favorite liqueurs and I use it too much in my creations just like the rest of the products of "Roots" because above all I don't forget who I am and where I'm coming from. Let yourself free and get ready to travel to the experiences and to the things that led me but still drive me here, through my own "Bella Vista" and its unique view as I see it.
