With its distinctive, arch-shaped bottle, Martell XO is a powerful symbol of inspiration – a testimony to Jean Martell’s visionary spirit. Combining the elegance of the Borderies with the power of the Grande Champagne terroirs, Martell is an outstanding XO bearing the hallmark of the Martell style.

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.
