Explore the Iconic Metaxa 12 Stars

On an almost wintery Monday evening in London, we were called to come to the Hoxton hotel in Holborn, for the discovery of spirit won’t recognise. Naturally we heckled at the idea of not knowing of a particular spirit, but remember that the element of discovery is what fuels our passion for Food & Drink.

We venture down to the Apartment, within the Hoxton Hotel, to discover how not only the fact that we’re just about to eat our words, but also an exciting new beverage that awaits the arrival of our palate.

A brand inspired by its founder, Spyros Metaxa, the 12 stars ticks all the boxes in terms of flavour and aroma. This sensational spirit has a deep gold amber look in the eye, potently boasting fragrant notes of toasted oak, fruits and spices, very much a deep reminder of that Christmas aroma we all love so much. Take another deep breath of the Metaxa 12 stars and you will find the additional notes of spicy herbs, chocolate and orange peel.
