The next year Martell Cognac celebrates 300 years of history. In celebration of the House’s Tricentenary, Cellar Master, Benoît Fil returned to Martell’s roots to create Martell Premier Voyage: a new blend containing 18 eaux-de-vie from Martell’s cellars. Using Jean Martell’s original correspondence, Fil pieced together a map of Jean Martell’s key suppliers from 1735-1742, and began to retrace his footsteps 300 years on. After sampling the different eaux-de-vie and met with the families wine descendants of the same suppliers of the Eighteenth century, Fil has studied this new blend, aged in oak barrels produced by a 300 years ago tree.

Bernar Venet has designed the packaging of this limited edition: three groups of metal arches, each to symbolize a century of Martell history, which shelter a simple and elegant teardrop-shaped Sèvres crystal decanter. Only 300-piece in limited edition, each individually signed, numbered and produced to order. Thus was born Martell Premier Voyage, the perfect homage to the historic maison and its founder Jean Martell.
