In 1783, Martell was the first to ship its barrels of cognac to the United States. Today, Martell celebrates this history with another first:
Introducing Martell Blue Swift, the first-ever spirit drink made of cognac VSOP and finished in bourbon casks.
Martell’s distillation signature process – free of impurities – leave it open to absorbing the rich aromatic tones from the bourbon cask. The result is Martell’s hallmark style, characterized by delicate notes of candied fruit and plum, now complemented by the subtle sweetness of vanilla and toasted oak from bourbon casks. Exceptionally smooth, with a rounded taste and unique character, this redefines the boundaries.
For years, the Swift has been an icon for Martell. A bird with the rare ability to fly for days without stopping, the Swift is bound by nothing – traversing oceans and continent.
An innovative eau-de-vie from Martell, which is made by finishing their acclaimed VSOP Cognac in Kentucky bourbon barrels. This finishing process adds rich aromatic tones to Martell’s delicate, pure Cognac, layering the characteristic candied fruit and plum notes with vanilla and toasted oak.
