Martell Blue Swift The Spirit

The Spirit

In 1783, Martell was the first to ship its barrels of cognac to the United States. Today, Martell celebrates this history with another first: 

Introducing Martell Blue Swift, the first-ever spirit drink made of cognac VSOP and finished in bourbon casks.

Martell's distillation signature process - free of impurities - leave it open to absorbing the rich aromatic tones from the bourbon cask. The result is Martell’s hallmark style, characterized by delicate notes of candied fruit and plum, now complimented by the subtle sweetness of vanilla and toasted oak from bourbon casks. Exceptionally smooth, with a rounded taste and unique character, this redefines the boundaries.

For years, the Swift has been an icon for Martell. A bird with the rare ability to fly for days without stopping, the Swift is bound by nothing – traversing oceans and continent.

In the mouth

It is soft, round and gourmand.  We taste deep and fresh notes of ginger and white candied fruits such as plums.
We then feel the ample, smooth and long toasted oak finish from Kentucky Bourbon casks.

The ice softens some of the initial oaky fire while still permeating the natural sweetness like that of a Bourbon.
