METAXA Grande Fine by Cacao Rocks, a tribute to Greece and the Artist’s heritage
Since the first time it was introduced several decades ago, METAXA Grande Fine has been acknowledged as a unique aesthetic proposal that pays tribute to Greece, its traditions, craftsmanship, art and inspirational way of living. In 2019, the House of Metaxa asks the street Artist Cacao Rocks to release his own interpretation of this iconic decanter.
Cacao Rocks’ biggest source of inspiration for METAXA Grande Fine comes from his French Grand Father. He discovered Greece during the second world war and fell in love with its culture and traditions. After the war, he travelled to the Cyclades and developed there a talent for film photography. His favorite island was Mykonos, where he took hundreds of pictures of its architecture, Art and typical bohemian way of life.
