Story: My grandfather traveled extensively for work ( physicist ) and on one trip passing through Heathrow he purchased a six pack of Martell. My grandparents drank very little really so the box was never was opened. Sat upright in the back of a bedroom closet for decades until I discovered it 8 years ago while clearing out the house for sale. I have included a photo of the tag/label from exterior of box. A date of 4/62 is printed on the Pan Am tag.

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!
