House of Martell has unveiled Martell VS Single Distillery, a cognac from a sole distillation source.
Martell VS Single Distillery has notes of plum, apricot and candied lemon on the nose and palate, the company says. In cocktails this blend pairs well with citrus fruits and red berries.
The bottle’s restructured cap is sealed with a beige paper ribbon, revealing its cork, along with the new label, both stamped with Jean Martell’s signature, the Martell House founder. The sides of the bottle, label and rounded corners revive the Martell VS image, the company says.
Martell VS Single Distillery will be available in U.S. markets including California, Washington DC, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, Nevada, Texas and Michigan this March with a suggested retail price of $34.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
“The House of Martell has always prioritized luxury to focus on the very quality of its blends, and as a result, the Martell expressions are characterized by outstanding depth and intricacy,” says Brian Smith, brand director, Marketing, Martell, Pernod Ricard USA, in a press release. “With Martell VS Single Distillery, we aim to go further, with a disruptive, supremely smooth blend, born out of the spirit of curiosity, using only one distillation source.”
