Created by Constantinos Raptis in 2011, Metaxa 12 Stars is the refined expression of a journey through the senses. This one-of-a-kind amber spirit unfolds a very complex character with subtle aromatic notes of toasted oak wood, orange peel and spices. It results from the unique craftsmanship of ageing and blending wine distillates and Muscat wines, exclusively from the island of Samos.
The Metaxa Master says: ‘Normally we use lightly-toasted barrels of Limousin oak. But here I use heavy-toasted barrels. I also select Muscat wine from higher altitudes, for even more concentrated flavours.’
He recommends to discover it neat or on ice, but bartenders of refined places and mixologists explore it in signature cocktails.
