A rare bottle of Cordon Bleu that transcends time and space
Sci-Fi lovers, unite! We're particularly excited about this very special bottle of Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac. It was gifted to the seller along with a number of other old bottles from the 1960s and 70s by a family friend, the father of his friend who as a NASA flight surgeon (medical doctor to the USA astronaut corps) who died several years ago.
This very old looking bottle was very likely a gift from fellow NASA employees, including astronauts, or purchased by him from the Johnson Space Center (JSC) duty free exchange store for employees of NASA in Houston, TX.
Take a closer look at the space-related world stamps that were also purchased from the JSC Exchange Store (stamps are likely from the early 1970s).
Presentation of the bottle
The wax seal and ribbon on the bottle are intact on this well aged, collectible Cordon Bleu.
Thank you for your consideration.
About Martell Cognac
Martell is the oldest of the Big Four Cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, not long ago did Martell celebrate its 300-year anniversary. The history of Martell & Co dates back to 1715 when Jean Martell founded the company with the wish to produce only the highest quality in Cognac. With the legendary bottles Martell Cordon Bleu, the cuvée Martell Extra L’Or de Jean Martell and the recent Création Grand Extra from 2007, the company strongly implanted itself in the luxury goods market, and are famous for using large amounts of eaux-de-vie from the Borderies terroir. It belongs to Pernod Ricard and has sales of around 15 million liters every year. The most precious eaux-de-vie, some of which date back to 1830, are stored in a secret location in the cellars of Jean Martell - approximately 1.6 million 9-liter cases!
