Released in 2015 to celebrate Martell's 300th anniversary, a limited edition Martell Tricentenary blend packaged in 10cl montre (a miniature bottle distillers traditionally present their samples in) is packaged alongside a Tricentenaire Edition decanter of Martell's classic XO cognac.

The recognisable arch-shaped bottle is covered with fine silver lines representing the rings of oak wood. There is also the profile of the swift in flight, the Martell emblem. The cork stopper is adorned with a cabochon carved from the same tree that was used to make the aging barrels and engraved with the tricentenary emblem.

The special Tricentenary montre is blended from a classic X.O. pre-blend but with with a higher proportion of Grand Champagne added.
