Martell Cordon Bleu Centenary 100 is a limited edition box by Martell, celebrating a century of this Cordon Bleu. By the way, we went to Monaco and celebrated the occasion with Martell - presenting a luxury boxed edition.
The set features an exquisite blue version of the classic bottle, a very simplistic design, with the 100 as an infinity symbol. The set also includes a 'montre' (that's a taster's bottle) with a Borderies blend by maitre, Benoît Fil. Martell originally released the classic Cordon Bleu in 1912, at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco. In 2012 the cognac house celebrated this centenary with a huge event, and this wonderful special edition cognac.
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!
