Description of Metaxa 12 Stars

Metaxa 12 Stars

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: Metaxa 12 Stars has a honied, radiant, mid amber colour with coppery reflections.
  • Aroma: Fruity on the nose, with scents of orange peel and hints of coffee, chocolate, and toasted oak.
  • Taste: Elegant on the palate, with flavours of dried fruit, orange peel, and a hint of spice. The finish is long and lasting, with more citrus hues and a little bit of spice.

PRODUCER: Metaxa.

COUNTRY: Greece.

PRODUCTION DETAILS: This amazing Greek liqueur is crafted as a blend of brandy that has been allowed to mature for up to 12 years, and the finest Muscat wines produced in the Samos region. Intense, herbal, and flavoursome, this spirit is the result of five generations of Metaxa Masters, who have dedicated their lives and expertise to preserve this marvellous recipe. The process begins at the selection of the wines and wine distillates, chosen for their aromatic intensity as well as their elegance in character. The wines and wine distillates are then matured in separate oak barrels until the Master determines they are ready to be blended. A combination of Mediterranean herbs provides the final touch. Enjoy this spirit neat, or with a single ice cube to enhance its flavour.

ALCOHOL: 40%
