Know-how 

Martell stands out from other great cognac houses because of its special double-distillation method, traditional in the Charente region. The distillation process is carried out in copper stills or tanks to extract the wine’s essence, referred to as “eau-de-vie”. Martell is the sole major cognac house to distil only clear wines – in which all sediments and impurities have been removed – to produce exceptionally fine and pure eaux-de-vie.
The grapes come from the Charente region's four main growing areas:  Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois.
