Licorice and orris fold into the herbal wilderness of Diktamo, a rare plant from the mountains of the Greek island of Crete.
Diktamo (Origanum Dictamnus or dittany of Crete), known in Cretan dialect as Έρωντας (erontas, "love", for its aphrodisiac properties), is a healing, therapeutic and aromatic tender perennial plant. In Ancient Greece, Hippocrates prescribed dittany and other Greek herbs to aid all kinds of illnesses, and Aristotle and Theophrastus all extolled the virtues of the 'miracle cure' plant in various ancient writings.
A cerebral and layered taste combining harmonically herbal profusion with fruity subtleness. It gives a firm and gently bitter mouthfeel, mimicking the sense of a ʻsweet velvetʼ texture. Peaty richness contrasted with herbal freshness.
Neat digestif, or on the rocks with a splash of tonic.
