Metaxa

The Original Greek Spirit

Boasting ‘2000 hours of sunshine in every bottle,’ Metaxa is a Greek grape-based spirit which is carefully blended from high-quality wood-aged wine distillates, aged Muscat wines, and a secret blend of Mediterranean botanicals and rose petals.
Metaxa’s entire production process takes place under the careful supervision of Master Blender Konstantinos Raptis. A blend of Savatiano, Sultanina, and Black Corinth grapes are employed in its production. The result is twice distilled to 60% ABV using traditional copper pot stills and then blended with aged muscat wine from Samos & Lemnos.
A unique blend of botanicals and rose petals impart their flavours through a special steeping process, after which the spirit is married in limousine oak casks to rest. When Master Blender Raptis has determined the spirit is ready, it is brought to -6°C for 48 hours, filtered and bottled.
