Clear, deep golden amber in colour. The bouquet shows orange marmalade, floral orange and violet blossom, dried apricot, toasted walnut and black pepper spice. The palate is slightly honey sweet and very fruity with marmalade, plum and red grapes. Mild black pepper spice. Violet and rose is very pronounced in the long marmalade and elegant oak finish with black pepper spice.

The House of Metaxa was founded by a Greek merchant and entrepreneur named Spyros Metaxas, born on the island of Euboea. He created the first Greek brandy and was involved in the foundation of the first distillation facility in 1888, a little over 50 years after the Greek War of Independence. This drink is often mistaken for a brandy, though it is actually a bit more complex than that. Starting off as a brandy, Metaxa is produced from locally produced Savatiano, Sultanina and Black Corinth grapes, then distilled twice to be sweetened later on with aged muscat wines from Leros and Samos and then blended with a secret botanical mix. At this stage, it is aged in hand-made oak barrels. Marketed as ‘the smoothest amber spirit under the sun’, Metaxa is very flavorful, with a touch of sweetness and citrus notes.
