Metaxa 5 Stars

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: This alcohol is kept in a sleek clear bottle, which allows its beautiful brown-amber colour to shine through.
  • Aroma: Oak spices and the aroma of a plummy red wine make up this drink's primary scent profile. Hints of floral notes and apricot lighten the scent.
  • Taste: The main flavour of this liqueur is that of a sweetened red wine. Mellow flavours of raisins and apricots provide the fruitiness of the beverage. Floral flavours and hints of vanilla provide further sweetness. Oak spices add a kick, which leaves the drink beautifully balanced.

PRODUCER: Metaxa was created in 1888 by Spyros Metaxa. The company's first distillery was opened in Piraeus, Athens. Today, Metaxa is known as the "Original Greek Spirit." Technically, it is neither a cognac or brandy, but it does have flavour components of both.

COUNTRY: Greece

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Mextaxa doesn't share much about its secret recipe. However, we do now that the base of Metaxa 5 Stars is made of Muscat grapes. The use of these grapes provides the beverage with both its raisin flavouring and floral notes. The grapes are likely distilled into a mixture of wine and brandy, before being mixed (but this is speculation). We do know for a fact that the final product is aged in oak barrels, which provides the beverage with its oak spice aroma and flavour.

Metaxa 5 Star

- In 1888 Spyros Metaxa, by blending only the finest matured wine distillates with the selected sun soaked grapes of Attica, created this distintive spirit giving it a unique smooth and mellow taste, neat, or on the rocks.
- The exact formula has remained a closely garded secret ever since.
