For all those connoisseurs looking for the special lot of cognac in the market, Martell has once again introduced something truly special. After completing 100 years (in last year) of world class Cognac making, the brand has launched the Cordon Bleu Centenary limited edition, in 2 different options of packing.
After creating special editions like the Dragon Rouge a few years ago, the brand has once again launched the limited edition cognac, with much of signature fine notes which are synonymous with the best that it has produced from the past.
The brand’s name dates back to 1912, when Edouard Martell created his own set of distilleries to produce some of the finest cognacs in the world, the specialty being Borderies eaux-de-vie. For those new to this arena, this speaks of the immensely regarded notes of floral and fruity blends, along with undertones of plum and orange.
The Cordon Bleu Centenary edition features the centenary’s visual code, the infinity sign, which also represents the figure 100. The Cordon Bleu Centenary cognac is also available as a special edition, presented in a wooden giftcase with silver trims and a magnetite opening system.
The giftcase is engraved with key historical dates relating to Cordon Bleu and decorated with 100 silver metallic squares in honour of the occasion. The case contains a blue lacquered and silver bottle of Cordon Bleu and a “montre” bottle containing a selection of 100% Borderies cognac specially blended by Martell’s cellar master Benoit Fil. Of the six crus in the cognac AOC, the brand has selected the four main ones: Grande and Petite Champagne, Fins Bois and Borderies.
As for collectors, do try and go to the nearest Asian duty-free shop where you would find one of these lying around.
