Overview

Crossing the threshold of the Martell House, in Cognac, means entering into a unique story. It is the story of a man, Jean Martell who founded his cognac house, in 1715 under the reign of Louis XIV. It is the story of a house which, from one generation to the next, has kept alive the age-old knowhow of vine- growers, distillers, barrel-makers and cellar masters. It is the story of a beautiful region, whose crus bear poetic names: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois. It is the story of a French art of living made up of refinement and elegance, whose spirit gives Martell cognacs their clearly recognizable style. It is a story to be discovered, explored… and savoured.

Being shown around the buildings, The guide was very knowledgeable. The older buildings are in great condition! They clearly are very proud of the Martell history & are doing a great job of keeping it alive. The tasting session was awesome! Thankyou x
