Martell x Davido Exclusive Blend

    A Swift Story

    Maison Martell and Davido are toasting their long-standing friendship with the release of an Exclusive Blend, specially created for Davido by Martell Cellar Master Christophe Valtaud, to mark the continuation of their partnership.

    Maison Martell is delighted to announce the continuation of the partnership with singer-songwriter and record producer, Davido, as an international ambassador. The successful collaboration started in April 2021, and is based shared values of audacity, and paving the way for others and create a legacy for future generations.

    Martell x Davido Exclusive Blend is a one-of-a-kind cognac incorporating eaux-de-vie from 1992, the year Davido was born. This timeless blend reflects Davido’s vibrant, generous personality with its strikingly round, smooth sensation on the palate and distinctive aromas of honey and cocoa, balanced by ripe fruit and tobacco. Its deliciously long finish is marked by notes of candied orange, sweet spices and rancio.

    Created in extremely limited quantities, the cognac is not for sale, but Davido will share this symbolic moment in his life by gifting it to his friends.

    This exciting initiative further cements Maison Martell’s close ties with Davido, whose inspiring success and vibrant personality epitomise the House’s spirit of daring and freedom.

    We are thrilled to continue the partnership with Davido. It has been a hugely successful collaboration to date, but we are just getting started and we look forward to what’s to come. We are very grateful for Davido’s passion for Martell and to be on this journey together”, says CEO Cesar Giron, CEO Martell Cognac.

    I am so excited to continue this incredible adventure with Martell. It has been an incredible 2 years discovering more about the brand, and I am so honoured for Christophe to gift me this Exclusive Blend which I can share with my friends. We rise by lifting others, and this is a value both Martell and I share. I can’t wait for what we will do next together.
