Martell NCF Non Chill-Filtered Cognac: Made for the Mixing Glass
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 at a cooler temperature. By filtering the Cognac at an ambient temperature means that when it's chilled for tasting, the flavors and aromas come to the fore, and the velvety mouthfeel is not affected. This allows Martell NCF to retain all its character when drunk over ice, in a cocktail or long drink - or even straight from the freezer. It’s a Cognac that feels at home on any party occasion, showing bright citrus notes and classic Martell fruitiness regardless of how you choose to drink it.
Out of the four major Cognac houses, House of Martell is famous for exclusively distilling clear wines, without the lees, to better preserve the lighter aromas of the grapes and reveal an extreme finesse. The history of Martell Cognac dates back to 1715, when Jean Martell, a young merchant from Jersey, founded his own trading business at Gatebourse in Cognac. Here on the banks of the River Charente his grand house still stands today, a worldwide Cognac icon that continues to innovate and evolve with the times.
Presentation of the Bottle
The bottle's curved profile is typical of Martell, instantly recognizable for Cognac drinkers all over the world. The reflective metallic copper coating is transparent towards the base to show the color of the liquid inside, while the label and seal feature the deep blue colour which has become a trademark of the brand.
How to Enjoy Martell NCF
An extremely versatile blend, this Cognac is equally enjoyable neat as it is in a mixed drink. The House of Martell suggests combining it with peach or lemon iced tea, a splash of soda water, or simply over ice.
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!
