Born under the passionate Greek sun, the sweet, mellow taste of Metaxa represents the best of the Mediterranean in every drop. Developed since 1888 in the Greek town of Piraeus, the taste of Metaxa is savoured today in over 75 countries. The same unique spirit is now appreciated everywhere from Greek taverns to New York cafés, sophisticated Viennese restaurants and the hottest nightclubs in Prague and Berlin.
Metaxa is distinguished as the most famous Greek spirit worldwide. Even though it is classified as a brandy, Metaxa is really unique: it is smoother than a traditional brandy due to the use of Muscat wines, Mediterranean botanicals and rose petals. Metaxa is produced from Savatiano, Sultanina and Black Corinth, twice distilled, married with aged muscat wine from Samos & Lemnos, blended with a secret botanical mix and then aged in hand made limousine oak casks.The empty tomb
Metaxa is generally available in three versions: Three Star, Five Star, and Seven Star. Each star represents a year that it's been aged in oak barrels, thus the Seven Star is the most aged and selected type. Generally speaking, it is relative easy to find the Three star, and the Five star in most liquor stores, but sometimes it is hard to find the Seven Star.
