Metaxa was established in 1888 by a visionary entrepreneur named Spyros Metaxa and is the leading exported spirit from Greece. Metaxa is more than just a brandy; it is a unique, carefully balanced blend of aged wine distillates, aged muscat wines from Samos, Limnos and Patras (areas in Greece), which is then matured and married in French limousine oak casks.
