Description of Metaxa Private Reserve

Metaxa Private Reserve

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: Metaxa Private Reserve is a warm, dark amber hue.
  • Aroma: A balanced and delicate nose of coffee, dark chocolate, flowers, fruitcake, poached pear, and oak, with echoes of cinnamon and vanilla.
  • Taste: A rich, deep, and fruity structure, full-bodied, mellow, and perfectly rounded, with subtle sweetness and notes of cigar box, citrus peel, figs, and fruitcake, into a somewhat black peppery tobacco finish. The flavours dance in your mouth, but so smoothly.

PRODUCER: Metaxa was founded by a man from a family of silk merchants, Spyros Metaxa, whose travels for trade introduced him to rich ingredients and recipe ideas. He introduced the first Metaxa in 1888.

COUNTRY: Greece

PRODUCTION DETAILS: Spyros Metaxas has the distinction of being the first to create Greek brandy. Metaxa Private Reserve is not merely a brandy, however, in the traditional sense, being rather more complex, and is called a ‘Greek spirit'. Crafted from Black Corinth, Savatiano, and Sultanina grapes, it is double-distilled; given added sweetness with aged Samos muscat wines; then a secret concoction of herbs and rose petals is blended with it, before all being placed in hand-made oak barrels to mature. Against this already rich, complex character, Metaxa Private Reserve is the most distinguished, as it is crafted annually by the Metaxa Master, drawing on the oldest and finest distillates, much twenty years old and some portion being thirty.

ALCOHOL: 40%

The Producer

Metaxa

Metaxa

Metaxa was created by Spyros Metaxa in 1888. This unique, amber-coloured spirit is a mix of Muscat wine, aged wine distillates, and Mediterranean botanicals. The wine distillates and Muscat wines are first aged separately before being blended in Limousin oak casks.

- On the nose there are notes of old honey, bitter citrus peel, chocolate & coffee and a mixture of sweet spices and pear compote.
- It's taste is complex, warm and generous, with gentle oak, dried figs, raisins, tobacco, orange peel.
- Long after-taste of dried fruit (figs, plums), smoky, with a long aromatic finish.
- Once every year, the Metaxa Master Constantinos Raptis brings to life an extraordinary creation.
- From the House cellars, he selects ingredients that have matured patiently and are at the absolute peak of their expression. Carefully, he brings them together in a single batch to create The Metaxxa Private Reserve.
- Every drop of this dark amber liquid reveals aromas of beautifully aged Muscat wines and of exquisite, aged wine distillates.
