MARTELL 1er Assemblage 40%

Cognacs, France / Poitou-charentes, 70cl, Ref: 4970

An exclusive re-release of a blend from Martell’s first ‘livre de coupes’ (book of recipes) that dates from 14 February 1879. It was created by Benoît Fil, Martell’s Cellar Master, as a tribute to the company’s expertise.

At the end of the 17th century, consumption of pure brandies made from Charentes grapes was developing. In the 18th century, independent bottlers began to blend them, to enrich the aromas of their cognacs, initially on an intuitive basis, and then scrupulously recording each recipe, which was known as a ‘coupe’. This blend from Martell’s first ‘livre de coupes’ (book of recipes) has been re-released in the historic bottle, with the original label.

The brand

The brand

Symbolic of the refined French lifestyle, Martell is the oldest of the main Cognac producers. Founded by the Englishman Jean Martell in 1715, Martell quickly exported to the United Kingdom and Asia, which was instrumental in developing the reputation of the Cognac region. In 1912, Martell created Cordon Bleu (almost certainly the company’s best known product), which established a prestigious reputation. Martell cognac went on to be served aboard the Queen Mary and Concorde. Since Pernod-Ricard bought the company in 2001 the brand has innovated and expanded its range to include more extremely refined products such as l’Or de Jean Martell and Martell Chanteloup Perspective. The company celebrated its tricentennial in 2015!
