Then upon tasting, you’ll be mesmerized by the perfect harmony encapsulated in the blending of more than 400 different eaux-de-vie - magic in its purest form. Cellar Master, Christophe Valtaud reveals;
"For me, L’Or de Jean Martell is the quintessence of Martell Cognacs. With the body of the Borderies and the structure of Grande Champagne, L'Or offers a perfect balance between rich aromas and power".

Today the brand is very much at the forefront of Cognac production and has earnt itself an outstanding international reputation. Martell’s signature distillation process is free of impurities and allows the eaux-de-vie to absorb its rich aromatic tones from the bourbon cask.

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!
