The second Collector’s Edition is presented in a porcelain bottle designed by Cacao Rocks, a Greek street artist who has developed his own distinctive and vibrant creative style, using Greek symbols and folklore in a modern and contemporary way.
“I had the honor of being asked by the House of METAXA to design one of their iconic decanters. Inspired by my grandfather, I wanted to follow his path, re-visit the Cyclades and take pictures of their typical landscapes. This is how I created the new METAXA Grande Fine design, my own interpretation of Cycladic architecture, a tribute to my grandfather”, says Cacao Rocks.
The decanter is decorated with patterns inspired by the windmills of Mykonos and other Cycladic symbols, using the artist’s colour palette: white for the Cycladic architecture, blue for the Aegean Sea and gold for the sun.
Inside the amazing bottle you will also find the most Greek - a one-of-a-kind, amber spirit - METAXA.
METAXA Grande Fine is one of the best gifts from Greece both as a present for your close ones and a souvenir for you. Its design makes the bottle a work of art.
