About METAXA 5 Stars:
A beautifully balanced marriage of fine wine distillates matured up to five years in oak casks and of Muscat wines from the Aegean islands. A treat, dark honey in colour, floral, fruity, intensely aromatic with soft oak flavours and a rewarding personality.
About the METAXA Sunball:
Considered as one of the most innovative service items for contemporary drinks, the clear METAXA Sunball holds 4cl (1.5 oz) of METAXA and lights up upon contact with the noble liquid. A proprietary innovation of the House of METAXA, this service item is available in selective bars around the world.
This year marks the first Summer Solstice celebration with the METAXA Sunball.
About the House of METAXA:
Founded in 1888 by Spyros Metaxa, a man of taste and natural risk taker. Since 1888, METAXA starts where other spirits stop. In a league of its own, METAXA is the smoothest spirit under the Sun thanks to its Muscat wines from the Aegean islands. METAXA is the only international spirit to bring together fine aged wine distillates and these intensely aromatic Muscat wines. Smooth, aromatic and endlessly versatile, METAXA brings a touch of Sun at the heart of your long drinks and cocktails alike.
