The House of Metaxa is opening up the cellars, to reveal METAXA ANGELS' Treasure, a gift offered to all lovers of exquisite spirits. Created by the Metaxa Master Constantinos Raptis, this is a spirit of supreme concentration, subtle smoothness and outmost aromatic intensity, true to the style of the House.
Patiently waiting in casks fine spirits age while interacting with the environment. Through evaporation, the water and alcohol they contain slip through the pores of the casks. In humid conditions, evaporation acts more on alcohol than on water, leaving the aged spirit with a reduced alcoholic strength. What flees the cask is known as "Angels' Share". This is not quite what happens in our cellars, in Attica. Here humidity is low, temperatures are moderate and stable throughout the year. As a result the Angels treat our blends in a very different, unexpected way. Sneaking off a bigger portion of water, the Angels leave behind a more concentrated and aromatic blend, with a significantly higher alcoholic content than when initially placed inside the cask. This blend of aged Muscat wines and exquisite distillates, meticulously selected and left to mature for decades, is a one of a kind, aged spirit, different from any other. This is not just a gift by the Angels. It is a rare treasure. METAXA ANGELS' Treasure.Metaxa Angels' Treasure
When the Metaxa Master was almost ready to reveal METAXA ANGELS' Treasure, he called on a friend, the olfactive expert Pierre Aulas to share an inspiring artistic encounter. For Pierre, the tasting of METAXA ANGELS' Treasure was an experience beyond anything he had expected. «The aromas left behind by the Angels were richer, more concentrated, creating a complex, interesting liquid that exploded in my mouth in a beautiful bouquet», he says. "The ANGELS' Treasure blend is sophisticated and elaborate with a perfect balance and, just like in a great perfume, this is a sure sign of excellence".
METAXA ANGELS' Treasure has a deserving, beautifully crafted decanter, with lines evoking the curves of angels' wings, crowned with a unique stopper expressing a drop of the precious, evaporated liquid. This elegant design has already won acknowledgement, as has the deep, amber spirit inside it. This is a secret so unique and exceptional that once it was shared with the world, it immediately earned prestigious awards in the international field of quality spirits.
