Metaxa 5 Star 750ml
Discover Assorted Liqueurs
Liqueurs are an alcoholic beverage made from distilled spirits and other ingredients including sugar, fruits, herbs, and spices. They are usually highly sweetened and un-aged beyond a resting time during manufacturing, if required, allowing their tastes to mix, and are often served with or after dessert.
Liquor, on the other hand, is sweet by nature, while liquor has a powerful taste that is everything from sweet. This word is really used to describe these sweetened spirits prepared with various tastes and extracts. One of the many reasons the two words are confused is because rum, brandy, and whiskey may all be used as a base spirit for liqueur. Liqueurs are liquors that have been sweetened and diluted. Liqueurs typically have an alcohol level of about 15% (compared to 40% in liqueurs), although they may reach up to 55%.
Liquors come in a variety of tastes, ranging from sweet and creamy to citrus-flavored and everything in between. Because many liqueurs are sweet and smooth, they may frequently be drunk without mixers or complex cocktail recipes.
About the Producer: Metaxa
Metaxa is an amber colored cognac liqueur produced in Athens, Greece. It was founded in 1888 by Spyros Metaxa and is now owned by the Remy Cointreau group, which also owns Remy Martin and Cointreau. Metaxa is Greece's most exported alcohol and can be found in over 65 countries around the world. The liqueur starts with brandy made from various white wine spirits, aged in oak barrels in the Metaxa underground cellar. The spirits are carefully blended and aged in French Limousin oak barrels. After a while, the alcohol is transferred to large oak barrels to add a wine aged in low-yielding Muscat barrels grown on the Aegean islands of Samos and Lemnos. To complete the production process, a secret blend of infused rose petals and Mediterranean herbs is added to the mix. There are several different variants of Metaxa, depending on the exposure time: three stars, five stars, seven stars and twelve stars. Metaxa also produces a range of mixed and singular expressions. The top filling is called AEN, a liquor made up of more than 200 blends made from Metaxa's original No. 1 barrel.
