(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) METAXA (www.metaxa.com) is distinguished as the most famous Greek spirit worldwide. Spyros Metaxas, a silk trader from Athens, was the first in Greece to distil wine in 1888 and the company he founded now sells over a million cases world wide. METAXA is produced from Savatiano, Sultanina and Black Corinth, double-distilled, married with aged Muscat wine from Samos & Lemnos, blended with a secret botanical mix and then aged in hand made oak casks. In the world market, Metaxa is generally available in three versions: Three Star, Five Star, and Seven Star. Extra old Metaxa “Private Reserve” brandies are marketed in attractive, painted, ceramic bottles.
