A swift Story in the making of Martell

With Martell, there is more to Cognac than on the rocks. The oldest of France’s great cognac houses opens the doors of its historic site and invites you to embark on a journey through its history, terroir and savoir-faire. Martell Discovery is a fascinating guided tour spanning 300 years from Jean Martell to the present day.

Martell Cognac is the oldest of the big four Cognac houses. It was founded by Jersey-born Jean Martell in 1715. Blending is an art which has been passed on through nine generations of Maison Martell Cellar Masters. At Martell, the swift has played an important role in our history for over three centuries, symbolizing freedom and a daring spirit. Artist Jacky Tsai took this historic emblem of Martell to create the story for our first NFT, “The Voyage of the Swift,” illustrating its ability to soar and standout through his signature bright colours and bold designs.
