The story of a young merchant creating his own trading business is hardly an uncommon one, yet few rose to the excellence and success as that of Jean Martell and his creation of Martell Cognac in 1715. One of the oldest cognac houses, Martell created stunning wine spirits that enchanted the world from Asia to the Americas, and after Jean Martell’s death in 1753, his widow continued to govern the venture with their sons and grandchildren joining in later years. Their most famous spirit, the Martell Cordon Bleu, solidified their position as titans of cognac in the 18th century.
Unveiled in 2017, the Martell VS Single Distillery strives to be their smoothest cognac yet. A blend of eaux-de-vie unite in this spirit, offering a richer expression of Martell style, smoother finish, and fruitier profile. Pouring a glass of the golden VS Single Distillery would unleash scents of apricot and candied lemon to the nose, with decadent plum strolling in for an enriching finish on the palate. A perfect cognac to enjoy neat, the VS Single Distillery also pairs superbly with citrus and red berry for a sensationally captivating cocktail.
