Description

Mellow taste with hints of vanilla and a delicate aroma make Metaxa 7 star Wine Brandy a spirit of distinction. The maker remained in private hands until sold in 1989 to Grand Metropolitan, which in turn sold it in 2000 to Rémy Cointreau.

The Muscat wine that goes into the blend is more concentrated and oxidized and is made with grapes grown at higher altitudes. The driver will input your year of birth into their device and may then require an ID check to complete the age verification process. The finest Muscats are chosen by the Metaxa Master to blend with his aged distillates, thus creating the signature smoothness of Metaxa.

He opened this at the weekend and popped it on the side, and when he went to get a drink, most of it had drained out all over the work top. METAXA is aged in handmade French oak barrels for at least three years before being flavored with a secret blend of herbs, including rose petals and distilled water. Its distinct sweetness is embellished in this soft and elegant brandy that follows with a smooth and balanced finish – typical to brandies made with fortified wines (in thie case fortified with Samos sweet wine) in Greece.

On the palate, it’s very smooth and honey sweet, with notes of dark dried fruit, chocolate, and dried and candied orange zest. The wine distillates which make up this spirit of distinction are aged for up to 7 years to give METAXA7* a golden colour and a full-bodied, raisiny, sweet taste. Generally speaking, the older Metaxa expressions show more dark, dried fruit elements and a more significant spiciness and pepperiness.Please use this section to instruct your driver on a specific place to leave the package(s) if the recipient is out, such as ‘If out leave with neighbour’. It is available in five grades: "3 stars" (at least 3 years old), "5 stars" (at least 5 year old), and "7 stars" (at least seven year old), 12 stars (at least 12 year old) and Private Reserve with spirits aged over 30 years.

During the check out process you will be asked to confirm that you are of legal age to purchase any age-restricted products. The addition of Metaxa's secret mix of rose petals and Mediterranean herbs, enhances Metaxa 12*'s complex and elegant bouquet; characterised by toffee, chocolate and prune.

Extra Old" or "Napoleon," with a minimum age of six years, set to change to a minimum of 10 years in 2016. Created in 1888 and labeled first as a Cognac and then as a brandy until prohibited by naming regulations, Metaxa is exported to tens of countries. It was created in 1888 by Spyros Metaxa, by blending only the finest matured wine distillates with the selected sun soaked grapes of Attica, he created this distintive spirit giving it a unique smooth and mellow taste. Since many of the flavor compounds in grapes are in the skins, thicker skins tend to make more flavorful wines. The company's current Metaxa master, the equivalent of a master distiller or master blender, Constantinos Raptis, is the fifth since 1888.It offers an intensely flavored spirit, with a layered complexity of fruit and spices that works equally well straight up or as a cocktail base.
