About this deal

It is a blend of brandy and wine made from sun-dried Savatiano, Sultana and black Corinth grape varieties. This is then blended with aged Muscat wines sourced from the Aegean islands of Samos and Lemnos along with Mediterranean botanicals. Metaxa is fine Greek spirit made by diluting an aged cask strength brandy with muscat wine and a recipe of botanicals including anise and rose petals.

Metaxa 7 Star Brandy Metaxa 7 Star Brandy is selected by the Metaxa Master, Constantinos Raptis, the finest wine distillates are blended with the Muscat wine and placed in large French oak casks. Old gold in colour, it reveals delicate aromas of Muscat and soft vanilla, followed by full, balanced flavours.Metaxa was founded in 1888 by Spyros Metaxa, a man of fearless vision who set out to create the smoothest amber spirit, refusing to give up until his dream had come to fruition. The House of Metaxa's long history and expertise in blending create a brandy that is rich, smooth, and balanced, perfect for sipping on its own or in cocktails.

Whereas 5 Star comes across as a quaffer, this is very much a sipper - it'll bring back memories of your Greek holidays for sure, but the ones of relaxing on the beach in the sun, as opposed to drinking too much at the hotel bar.

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. Metaxa 7 Star Amphora is a Greek, brandy-based spirit that is produced by blending a cask-aged brandy with muscat wine and a top-secret recipe of botanicals, including star anise and rose petals, then further ageing it for 7 years.

The man in charge is the “Metaxa Master”, the current Metaxa Master, Constantinos Raptis, is the fifth in line since 1888. The Metaxa 7 star appears golden honey in colour with seductive dried fruit and orange blossom, mingled with soft vanilla on the nose.

Compared to the younger 5 Star, the additional two years of aging might not seems like it should make a difference, but boy howdy does it.
