METAXA PRIVATE RESERVE

This is Costantinos Raptis’ first original creation as Metaxa Master, enveloping dried apricot and prune, honey, black raisins and a mix of peppers. It is voluptuous and intense, with a very long and rewarding aftertaste of dried fruit and sweet spices.

They say that to be Mediterranean is to have a different attitude. Certainly this claim is reflected in Metaxa.

When speaking of this unique spirit, we should not merely consider it a brandy, for while it is produced from grapes, it's similarities to brandy end there.

Metaxa was first created by a silk trader named Spyros Metaxas who in 1882 built a distillation's factory in the city Chyphisia in the Attica region near Athens.

A blend of Savatiano, Sultanina and Black Corinth grapes are employed in its production. These are twice distilled to 60% Alc./Vol., then reduced with aged muscat wine from Samos & Lemnos. Further blending continues utilising a mix of botanicals including anise and rose-petals. Then finally, the spirit is married in limousine oak casks.

Metaxa is generally available in three versions: Three Star, Five Star, and Seven Star. Each star represents one year spent in oak. The product has earned world recognition for its quality, colour and taste and is distinguished as the most famous Greek spirit worldwide, over and above ouzo.
