Martell Blue Swift is a powerful symbol of inspiration, testimony to Jean Martell’s visionary spirit.Combining the elegance of the Borderies with the power of the Grande Champagne growth, Martell is an outstanding XO which bears the hallmark of the Martell style.Easy to drink but such a complex flavour It's a special cognac, extra old, presenting a blend of the rough elements of the Grande Champagne and the smooth effects of the Borderies. Cognac is made, primarily, from a blend of grapes that include the Ugni blanc, Folle Blanche, and Colombard varietals. At least 90% of the cognac must be comprised of those grapes, while an additional 10% can be made of other kinds, such as Semillon, Folignan, and more. Like Champagne, cognac must be made in the Cognac region of FranceThe rules governing cognac are many, but essentially it must be double distilled and the final distillation must be between 67 to 72 degrees (alcohol by volume). It can take several decades for the strength to drop naturally to that which most of us drink cognac, 40 degrees. This natural process is by evaporation, the lost alcohol being known as ‘Part des Anges’, the ‘Angel’s Share’. To avoid waiting and to minimize cost, the producer dilutes the young cognacs, often adding sugar syrup and caramel. Swift is a smooth pioneering spirit by Martell made of 100% Martell VSOP Cognac, finished in Bourbon casks from Kentucky.Indulge yourself by ordering these at Jumia Kenya and have us deliver it to you.
