The Founder

Born in 1848 in Greece, Spyros Metaxa is a descendant of a family of silk merchants. An adventurer and man of taste, he decides to establish his own business in fine goods. Always travelling, Spyros Metaxa discovers different spirits and wines from around the world.

Spirits of his time tend to be harsh on the palate, without much aroma or character. Spyros Metaxa dreams about crafting a unique spirit that is smooth yet intense. It would be a spirit that was a real journey through the senses.

In 1888 he creates METAXA, the Original Greek Spirit.

130 years of History

Spyros Metaxa builds his first distillery in 1888 in Piraeus, the port of Athens. His unique one-of-a-kind amber spirit is soon being exported around the Mediterranean.

The Salamina Warrior

The story says that when Spyros Metaxa was building his distillery in Piraeus, he found an ancient medallion depicting the “Salamina Warrior”. The Battle of Salamina took place in 480 BC in the waters near Piraeus.

The Greek navy was well outnumbered by the invading Persian forces, but fought them off heroically. The Salamina Warrior became a symbol for risk-taking and courage-the perfect emblem for Spyros Metaxa's venture that took deep roots in Greece.


Although it was first compared to a Cognac, and later to a Brandy, METAXA is impossible to classify.

Today it is recognized for what it is, a unique amber spirit.

The Metaxa Master

The House of Metaxa does not have a Master Distiller, nor a Master Blender. It has a Metaxa Master, Constantinos Raptis. He is only the fifth Metaxa Master since the creation of the House.

Constantinos Raptis needs both inspiration and passion. Just as he needs to blend the ingredients that make METAXA, the Metaxa Master needs to blend in the old with the new. He must retain the tradition and the style of METAXA, while creating its new expressions, like METAXA 12 Stars or METAXA Angels’ Treasure.

The Craftsmanship

Constantinos Raptis first makes his selection of the Muscat wines from Samos, chosen for their aromatic concentration and intensity. He then chooses the fine wine distillates for their character and elegance.

The Muscat wines and wine distillates are aged separately in oak casks until he decides they are ready to be married. A bouquet of Mediterranean botanicals brings the final touch.

"To those who would like to discover METAXA: think of discovery that is as unique as it is unexpected. You will embark on a journey of pleasure through all your senses, a journey that you will want to take time and time again."
