In 1888, Spyros Metaxa, a pioneer looking ahead of his time, embarked on a journey to create a one-of-a-kind amber spirit and brought to the world METAXA.
METAXA 12 Stars, the refined expression of this journey, is an iconic spirit incarnated through a distinctive packaging. The simple design of the METAXA 12 Stars packaging sheds light on all the elements that denote the one-of-kind character of METAXA 12 Stars.
The golden Salamina Warrior stands proud, carrying the roots of the House. A signature engraved on the sides, is a tribute to the founder Spyros Metaxa, giving credit to the distinctive METAXA 12 Stars label. The luxurious bottle bottom brings to mind a fine drinking glass. Sealed with a blue cap, reminiscent of the Greek blue, this elegant container is the keeper of the golden amber spirit inside.
The unique style of METAXA 12 Stars is an expression of exceptional craftsmanship. The radiant amber spirit invites you to explore the depth of its character and elegant nature. Subtle fragrant notes of toasted oak wood, fruits and spices, are the concentrated aromatic first impression that tingles the senses. Dried flowers and spicy herbs, coffee and chocolate work together with dried prunes and orange peel, offering a velvety, silky feeling.
Once you sip it, memories of dark cocoa come in to enrich the experience, spiced up with a touch of playful licorice, the awakening tanginess of dried orange, all rounded up with a kiss of honeyed figs and prunes. A hint of spice and orange peel come in for the rewarding finale of a story told through fascinating notes.
Metaxa 12 Stars is best explored neat, or on a single rock. Available now at select Dan Murphy’s and independent liquor stores (RRP $70). More info: www.dontdrinkexplore.com
