Ouzo by METAXA is distiled in small, traditional copper stills according to a time-honored recipe. Spices such as anise, mastic and badiane are combined in a unique mix which gives ouzo by METAXA its distinctive, rich aroma and a taste that is full and balanced.
In the early 1900s, the Metaxa distillery was in Piraeus and, like other distilleries of the time, created different styles of alcoholic drinks. Among them, the most popular Greek aperitif: Ouzo. OUZO by METAXA is based on the original recipe of that time, which includes different aromatic seeds of the Mediterranean basin and the rare mastic of Chios island.
At the edge of Europe, in the heart of the Aegean Sea, Muscat vineyards are nourished by the Sun, kept cool by the sea breeze, their roots piercing tough mineral soil.
The inimitable spirit character of METAXA is crowned with the gift of Muscat wine. A noble varietal, Muscat has been yielding wines of the highest aromatic concentration since Antiquity.
The finest Muscats are chosen by the Metaxa Master to blend with his aged distillates, thus creating the signature smoothness of METAXA.
