Mike Horn Metaxa Brand Ambassador
Metaxa 12 Stars, an intoxicating alcoholic aperitif from Greece and Mike Horn, ruggedly handsome explorer, are a match made in heaven really. So, when an invitation arrived to explore Metaxa 12 Stars at a tasting it was too good an opportunity for your Luxury Diva to miss! Sadly Mr Horn was off exploring, but Metaxa was a delicious revelation.
Have you ever tried Metaxa, a splendid drink from an iconic Greek spirit house? No I had never hear of it either. However, if you are invited round to my house you will definitely be served a glass! It is my new favourite apero and at 40% proof my guests will soon be very merry indeed! Metaxa is a blend of aged distillates and fine Muscat wine from the Aegean islands.
Beautiful new bottle of Metaxa 12 Stars
A deliciously warm and spicy amber liquid that sensuously reveals fragrant notes of toasted oak wood, fruits and spices. Hints of dried orange, dark cocoa , honeyed figs and prunes and spices delight the senses.
The tasting was held at The Apartment, Hoxton Holborn Hotel, a chic urban hotel in London. A welcome cocktail of Metaxa 12 stars and ginger ale was a very nice welcome indeed. Followed up by a tasting of Metaxa over ice with a professional ice carver and a beautiful ice sculpture which encased a bottle of Metaxa 12 stars.
Metaxa 12 Stars Tasting
A visit to the Metaxa 12 stars sensory room followed a live tasting complete with a tasting of the fresh ingredients and a visual display and video. Thank you to Metaxa for a lovely evening and the bottle of Metaxa 12 Stars. We are enjoying sharing it with friends as a new aperitif discovery!
