An intriguing 2017 release from Martell – it’s a VS Cognac made with spirits distilled exclusively at one distillery! Their reasoning behind this choice (rather than using eaux-de-vie from a selection of Cognac-based distilleries) was to aim for a richer, more intense style of spirit
Martell VS Single Distillery marries spirits from a single distillation source in the Cognac region, in France, for a richer and more intense expression of the Martell distillation style.
Among the great cognac houses, Martell double distils exclusively clear wines – from which all sediments have been removed – in order to preserve the authentic fruity aromas of the grapes, and reveal an extreme finesse, that are hallmarks of the Martell style. Taking this approach further, each bottle of Martell VS Single Distillery is blended from eaux-de-vie derived from a single distillation source. In this supremely smooth blend, the luscious fruity aromas associated with Martell are truly taken to new heights.
TASTING NOTES: An easy, smooth and fruity blend. Bright and golden in colour, Martell VS Single Distillery reveals pleasant notes of plum, apricot and candied lemon on the nose. Its rich fruity flavours on the palate and its luscious mouthfeel make for a great Cognac to enjoy in long drinks or in cocktails.
