The Martell XO Extra Old Cognac is a delightful offering from Martell, the oldest of the large Cognac houses. It's truly complex, the flavors created from the blend of the premier cru, Grande Champagne, and the smoothness of the Borderies terroir. A real masterpiece of blending - first the aromas tease your senses, and then the palate thrills with delicious texture, richn depth, yet manages to remain elegant throughout.
The presentation is also of great quality, coming in a decanter that wouldn't be out of place displayed within the finest of drink collections. And the excellence of this Cognac has been well noted by experts within the industry. It's recently been awarded the Gold Medal in the XO Ultra Premium Category at the 2017 Cognac Masters.

Martell is the oldest of the big cognac houses. Similar to Rémy Martin, but a few years older still, Martell will soon 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, 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. 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!
