Martell is the world's third largest Cognac brand.
The oldest Cognac house was created in 1715 by the Englishman Jean Martell, then barely 20 years old and attracted by the already worldwide fame of Charente brandies. His business prospered and a century later his Cognacs were exported as far as Asia.
In 1912, Martell cognacs reached a historic milestone by entering the world of luxury thanks to the creation of Edouard Martell: Cordon Bleu, the star of cognacs! Martell became a symbol of refinement, and in 1936 took its place on board the famous Queen Mary for her maiden voyage.
Today, Martell is the world's 3rd largest Cognac brand. Master of all its production, from distillation to bottling, blending and ageing, it has chosen to produce Cognacs from the 4 main appellations of the region and to give pride of place to Borderies, the 3rd growth in the Cognac hierarchy, renowned for its elegance.
This know-how combined with the oak barrels of the Tronçais forest in which they age for many years, gives rise to extremely fine, floral and fragrant Cognacs, carefully preserved in bottles with subtle lines.
