Martell have shown us once again, that their artistic flair has the ability to turn classic, award-winning Cognacs into works of art time and time again. The Martell XO Cordon Bleu Art of Generosity edition is a gorgeous edition of the classic Cordon Bleu Extra Old, using the same vibrant royal blue of the Cognac maison, but taking it one step further. Martell commissioned the contemporary artist Mathilde de L’Ecotais to create a cutting edge design by combining new technology with traditional techniques. It is complete with a stylish marketing campaign that should not be missed. Inspired by the vines and natural elements of Cognac vineyards, de l’Ecotais created a set of stunning multimedia prints to be transposed on to the chic blue bottle. The bottle, which incorporates the famous Martell swift with stunning flashes of gold and blue. The bottle is adorned with a blue wax seal, and it arrives in an equally stunning box.

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!
