Martell's 'Very Special' cognac was created in the middle of the 19th century and is one of the most recognisable bottles in the world. It is blended from eaux-de-vie, mainly from Fins Bois, a Cognac region noted for its quick maturation so giving this V.S. a f fruity charter.
Martell V.S. is blended from 20 to 30 eaux-de-vie which are typically matured for a little over two years.
