I was first introduced to the world of METAXA on the island of Symi, where I spend all my summers. Greece, for me is a mix of sea breeze with an aromatic scent of thyme and oregano... and finally a touch of sweet honey. Each time I come back, it feels like coming home.

I tasted my first drops of METAXA through Fellini and Bergman!
As a college student, I had joined a film school founded by art students.
After class, we would discuss European cinema and life and all the big guys were drinking METAXA.

"There are a lot of links between fine spirits and perfumes," says Pierre. "It is all about the small details that create a strong memory, a lasting appeal. What I did In order to feel the notes in METAXA ANGELS’ Treasure, was exactly what I do with perfume. I closed my eyes, set my senses free and then gradually discovered the key elements that inspired me. My first impression was of a beautiful, harmonious richness coming through from a very balanced bouquet. It was fruity, with a touch of candied plum and pear, flowery with violet accents, spiced up with clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. A side of it was a bit woody, with liquorice, walnuts and sweet, leathery vanilla". Pierre selected three major notes that stood out: Sophisticated Bourbon Vanilla, with amber and leather attributes. Rich Plum Marmalade, sweet and dense, and finally, Everlasting Flower, a scent that contains walnut, spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, tobacco, honey and also liquorice.

The mystique and patina of time at the cellars of the House of Metaxa, the craftsmanship in the art of its creation, and the fact that for me METAXA stands as an "ambassador" of Greece, were the starting points of an ongoing inspiration from the very beginning of this collaboration that started back in 1992, evolved via the limited edition of AEN METAXA in 2008 and continues until today with METAXA Grande Fine. Among all the styles of the METAXA family, I have always had a special bond with METAXA Grande Fine. For me, it embodies the authentic, free, Greek spirit and character and it encloses the joy of life and the sun. It’s almost like a voyage of self-discovery and appreciation of all things important in life. I drink it in special moments and every time it feels like I am discovering it all over again.

For me, METAXA is something of a memory-recovery drink. It is associated with the more memorable moments of my childhood.
Not as a drinker of course, but as an ever-present symbol of getting together with loved ones.
Probably, every Greek has grown up with a couple of METAXA bottles in their homes (this is one tradition that still goes on!)
I love my METAXA 12 STARS on a single rock - and with several friends. On a terrace, looking at the horizon over the sea, glasses at hand,
voices and laughter, the light breeze in our hair. That’s a METAXA moment for me.
