In 1783, Martell was the first Cognac Maison 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.

If you are searching for the next bottle to craft your perfect homemade Old Fashioned, look no further!

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!

But if you ran out of bitters, or just don’t want the fuss of stirring your cocktail before you can enjoy it, Martell Blue Swift can be enjoyed on the rocks, or even neat, to enjoy its rich and complex aromas.

Martell Blue Swift Old Fashioned:

50mL Martell Blue Swift

10mL simple syrup

Dash of bitters

Orange peel
