Metaxa: The Greek Brandy

Metaxa was created on 1888 by Spyros Metaxas.  It is a greek spirit, famous globally about its uniqueness.
Metaxa is the result from  the blending of  3 special ingredients:

  1. Distillate (2 times in a pot still). Before the distillation it was a magnificent wine from 3 excellent varieties: Savatiano, Soultanina and Koritnthiakos.  After the distillation, it is being aged in french limousine oak barrels for 3 to 30 years, depending on the Metaxa product in which it is going to be blended.
  2. Aged muscat wine from the Greek islands of Samos and Limnos.
  3. A secret recipe according to wich a liquid is being infused with herbs and rose petals.

The final blend goes back in oak barrels for one more year, at least, and then it is being chilled filtered. Now, you know more things about the bottle that is available in almost every big liquor store in the world.

I was born on the beautiful Greek island of Corfu. Maybe that explains why I like walks on the beach at sunset during the summer. I spent my childhood in the small scenic town of Agrinio in central Greece, where I totally fell in love with nature. Soon after high school I got my first earnings working as a waiter and yes, this is how i got involved in the bar industry. I like to make cool, charming and creative projects on the premise that they pertain to spirits, cocktails and the art of drinking. I am a lover of life and my design stash is always full of refreshing ideas.
