So what is 12-Star Metaxa? What other star ratings are there? The star rating doesn’t refer directly to the quality of the product, but to the age of the youngest spirit in the bottle. Metaxa is a blend of spirits from different years, in the same way that sherry is a blend, and so the youngest spirit in 12-Star has been aged for at least twelve years. Some may have been aged even longer, but none less than twelve years.

The other two Metaxas in their regular range are 5-Star and 7-Star, so you can figure out that they contain spirits aged for at least five and seven years respectively. So while the number of stars isn’t a comment on how ‘good’ the spirits are, you would naturally expect the 12-star to be richer and more complex, thanks to the extra time in the barrel
