Terroir, precision and time: the three essential elements of Martell know-how. An expertise and a passion that have been passed down from generation to generation since 1715.
Martell's 300 years of history and expertise are the precious heritage of the oldest of the great cognac houses. The House was founded in 1715 by Jean Martell, a daring young man, just 21 years old, driven by an unwavering commitment to quality. This philosophy of excellence is combined with a capacity for innovation that allows the House to constantly evolve, creating new expressions of cognac.
Whether it is increasing biodiversity and improving the health of our vineyard soils, adopting more environmentally friendly distillation or reducing carbon emissions from transport, Martell is at the forefront of industry efforts to ensure greater sustainability. By applying its innovation and renowned expertise, the House is creating a sustainable future not only for its famous vines, but also for future generations of cognac lovers.
The oldest of the great cognac houses opens the doors of its historic site and invites you on a unique journey to the heart of its history, its terroir and its know-how. In a contemporary scenography, the Martell House offers three visits according to your desire to discover.
A fascinating guided tour, from Jean Martell to the present day, is on the Martell Discovery programme.
Martell Savoir-faire takes you a little further into the world of the House, with a workshop for bottling your own cognac watch in a cellar that is usually closed to the public.
So that cognac no longer holds any secrets for you, the Martell Héritage tour allows you to take part in the making of a cognac blend in the workshop of our Cellar Master. A unique experience in an exceptional setting.
