The result is an unprecedented combination of richness and complexity that offers cognac lovers a complete expression of the very best of the Cognac terroir.

History of Martell
Founded in 1715, Martell is the oldest of the great Cognac Houses. The elegance, complexity and balance of Martell style are the result of a unique savoir-faire: the distillation of clear wines only and the ageing of its eaux-de-vie in fine-grain oak barrels. The first cases of Martell arrived in China in 1858 and in 1874 in Malaysia.
