The Martell NCF Non Chill-Filtered Cognac is a first for the house, in that the filtering process was carried out at room temperature, instead of one that's lowered. The reason for this is that NCF is intended to be drunk over ice, in a cocktail or long drink, or even straight from the freezer. By flitering the Cognac at a warmer than usual temperature means that when it's chilled for tasting, the flavors and aromas come to the fore, not to mention it's velvety smooth feel on the mouth.
The presentation is also extraordinary, in a luminescent copper bottle with glow in the dark crisscrossed lines. Thsi is a Cognac that's perfect for any party occasion, and will definitely appeal to the younger Cognac drinker. Enjoy the fruity, citrusy flavors that come through whether it's drunk neat or as a mixed drink. A great bottle to have in your home bar or to take when visiting friends.
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!
