Cranking up the signature Martell distillation process style? Gimme!

If you make anything for over three centuries, chances are you are pretty damn good at it. House Martell is the eldest of the major Cognac houses. Founded in 1715 by Jean Martell along the banks of the Charente, at the pinnacle of the French "L’Art de Vivre." The French basically have this way of living, where they believe in embracing all of the good stuff life has to offer. Martell Cognac is definitely the good stuff, with a full range of expressions for us to indulge in. La vie est belle, d’accord? Cheers to House Martell.

The young Briton put himself on the map by marrying into "Cognac royalty" not once, but twice! His second marriage was to Jeanne-Rachel Lallemand, "a direct descendant of Jacques Roux, a pioneering 17th century Cognac merchant," by the 19th century, Martell had become the biggest international exporter of Cognac in the world, reaching as far as China and Japan.

Martell VS Single Distillery is a marriage of Spirits from a single distillation source in the Cognac region. This means a richer and more intense expression of the Martell distillation process. (Basically, a Martell that's high in Martell!) The iconic Martell style of double distilling exclusively clear Wines to preserve the fruity aromas is taken to new heights. Aged for 2 years in oak barrels and bottled at 80 proof, the delicate aromas of grapes and luscious fruity aromas immediately let you know this is the real Martell.

There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
Laws concerning Cognac-making are strict as hell. Only three types of grapes may be used, and they can only be harvested in October; Cognac must be aged for at least two years in barrels made from French oak - and get this, from one of two specific forests! Then, the stills must be of a particular French shape (no, not the baguette shape); and we guess La Marseillaise has to be sung during the entire process.
There are three different qualities of Cognac recognized by law: V.S. (very special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and X.O. (Extra Old).
Cognac is a form of distilled Brandy. For a spirit to be labeled Cognac, it must be made from specified grapes, of which Ugni Blanc is the one most widely used. It must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels from Limousin or Tronçais.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
Believe it or not, the French aren’t all that fond of Cognac. In fact, they export nearly 90% of their production.
