Martinaud XO Heritage Cognac
A beautifully mature Cognc blend, this XO Heritage from Maison Martinaud presents a sumptuous blend of vintage eau-de-vie selected from the years 1962 and 1963. Upon tasting this offering, you’ll be transported to the cellar master’s cave, where he worked passionately in the calm and semi-darkness. You will appreciate all its nobility and finesse due to a remarkable "rancio": the result of its long aging process, which saw the eaux-de-vie come into contact with the air and the wood.

The distillery has been producing the finest quality cognacs since 1750, making it one of the oldest cognac houses in the world.
