Martell VSOP cognacs are best served with mixers. For those drinking Martell VSOP for the first time, they can mix the drink with coke, ginger ale, or tonic water.

You may also follow this simple recipe of a cognac cocktail: pour 50ml Martell VSOP cognac over crushed ice, mix in lemon juice and sugar syrup, then complete it with premium mineral water. Stir well and top it off with a lemon peel twisted over the drink.

Martell cognac can also be drunk neat, either with ice or diluted with a little cold water. The water helps release the aroma and taste of the cognac. Warming cognac is not recommended as the process can bring out an overly strong alcohol taste and release the aromas too quickly.

A tulip glass is recommended for use when drinking Martell cognac as it allows for a much better appreciation of the entire aromatic range of the cognac.

What are the benefits of cognac?

According to a Livestrong article, moderate amounts of cognac may be good for circulation and heart health. It can also help reduce the activity of free radicals due to its antioxidant properties like ellagic acid, gallic acid, and vanillin.

What is the difference between Cognac and Brandy?

While cognac is not similar to brandy, it is a type of brandy that has been distilled and aged under strict production methods. Made in the wine-growing regions of Charente and Charente-Maritime surrounding the town of Cognac, France, it is an amber-coloured alcoholic beverage that has gone through the process of distilling wine to create eau-de-vie, ageing in oak barrels for at least 2 years, and finally blending different eaux-de-vie to produce a specific flavour.

About the Brand - Martell

Founded in 1715 by Jean Martell, a native of Jersey, Martell is the oldest of the great Cognac houses. Martell used grapes from the vineyards in the Borderie subregion, and used Tronçais oak for its casks, this made a combination that resulted in an exceptionally smooth cognac.

In 1831, Martell created his first "VSOP" (Very Superior Old Pale) cognac and continued its international expansion. Its fame spread throughout the world, with the first exports to Japan and other Asian markets, such as Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Korea.

In 1912, Cordon Bleu was created and it became the most famous product ever released by the label.

In the 2000s, Martell created new cognacs: "Martell XO" in 2005, "Martell Création Grand Extra" in 2007, in a bottle designed by the artist and glass designer Serge Mansau. In 2009, Martell cognac launched its signature cognac, "L'Or de Jean Martell". In 2011, Martell expanded its "ultra-prestige" collection with an exceptional cognac, "Martell Chanteloup Perspective", a tribute to the know-how of the cellar masters and to the Domaine de Chanteloup.
