In 1783, Martell was the first Cognac House to ship Cognac to the United States. Today, Martell celebrates this history with another first: Martell Blue Swift, the first-ever spirit drink made of 100% cognac VSOP and then finished in bourbon casks.
Bold and smooth, Martell Blue Swift reveals rich notes of caramelised fruits, vanilla, coconut and spices, followed by distinctive hints of toasted oak from the Kentucky bourbon casks. This makes the ideal base for an elevated Old Fashioned, marrying the fruitiness and complexity of cognac to the bold and spicy accents of bourbon. A French twist on a classic bourbon cocktail!
Don’t feel like making your own cocktail? Martell Blue Swift can be enjoyed on the rocks, or even neat, to enjoy its rich and unique aromas.
