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.

The story of the House of Metaxa motivated and inspired me. From my very first encounter with METAXA, I could sense a rush of warmth and energy, a feeling of being at 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.

I am inspired and motivated by the entire story of METAXA. For me, METAXA is the textbook definition of a Greek success story, in fact one of the biggest of all times! Every METAXA creation has a place in my life, but AEN METAXA is truly incomparable. I will never forget the very first sip of AEN METAXA; elegant and smooth in the beginning, complex and sophisticated as the aftertaste takes over.
I love drinking a glass of AEN in my balcony overlooking Mount Lycabettus, a site of deep significance in my life. At that moment I can feel endlessness.

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.
