Metaxa (Greek: ?eta??) is a distilled Greek drink invented by Spyros Metaxas in 1888. It is a blend of brandy, spices and wine, with wine not to be used in some of the more expensive editions of the product to allow for a drier taste . It is exported to over 60 countries and was the first liquor consumed in space! The founder of the distillery was Spyros Metaxas, born on the island of Evia, created the first brandy and was involved in the first foundation of the distillation unit in 1888, just over 50 years after the Greek War of Independence. The deal was soon extended with new factories in Istanbul and Odessa. In 1900 occurred the first exports to the United States occurred and the drink became known as "the flying brandy." After Metaxas' death, his sons continued their work. Metaxa is the only Greek industry that has survived two world wars. In 1968, a new factory was built in Kifissia suburb of Athens. The label shows a Salaminomaho (Salamina fighter), a figure of an ancient Greek trireme that was carved in a coin of that period, found during the excavation of the first factory in Piraeus in 1888. Metaxa won several gold medals in international competitions. In 1989 the company was bought by the British drinks group Grand Metropolitan (now called Diageo) and was later sold to the group Remy Cointreau
