Roots Diktamo is a spirited liqueur with wild herbs from Crete in a Greek herbal recipe. Liquorice and orris fold into the herbal wilderness of Diktamo, a rare plant from mountains of the Greek island of Crete. 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.
Diktamo (Origanum Dictamnus or dittany of Crete), known in Cretan dialect as Έρωντας (erontas, "love", for its aphrodisiac properties), is a healing, herapeutic 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.
