Martell VS (very Special) cognac is a distinctive blend made up of eaux-de-vie from the regions of Cognac. One of the most recognisable brands in the world, this is the foundation of Martell's enormous international success.

Martell VS Fine Cognac is produced from the most prestigious crus of the Cognac region, largely made with Ugni Blanc grapes from the Borderies area, selected by the cellar master and aged in French oak barrels. The results are fruity and woody and quite complex with rich fruit and spice notes framed by citrus and fresh pear.
Country Of Origin: France

Martell is one of the oldest cognac houses. Founded in 1715 by Jean Martell (1694-1753), it is part of the Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët subsidiary of the French wines and spirits group, Pernod-Ricard.

In 1715, Jean Martell, a young merchant originally from Jersey, created his own trading business in Cognac, on the banks of the Charente, and thus founded one of the very first cognac houses. After his death in 1753, his widow and then his two sons and grandson continued this tradition and developed the export business to make Martell the number one in England in 1814.

In 1831, Martell created his first "VSOP" (Very Superior Old Pale) cognac and continued its international expansion. Its fame spread throughout the world, with the first exports to Japan and other Asian markets, such as Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Korea. Cordon Bleu, created in 1912, is certainly the company’s most famous product.

The terroir in the Les Borderies region creates a cru that is believed to be the most prestigious in the Cognac region through its rarity and the quality of the eaux-de-vie which it produces. When he founded his house, Jean Martell was already interested in the Les Borderies region. Its Ugni Blanc grapes bring its cognacs an aromatic richness.  

Martell has developed its own method of distillation using traditional Charentais copper stills. Supervised by the cellar master, the distillation uses techniques and expertise that have been passed on since the time of Jean Martell.
