Martell Cordon Bleu The Legendary Union Limited Edition by Pierre Marie
The Martell Cordon Bleu is loved for its deliciously fruited and spicy notes intertwined with aromatic elegance of orchard fruits like crystallised plums and apples. It has a well-rounded body with a touch of vanilla and coffee, making it a great digestif for every occasion. And to celebrate the new year, there is a limited edition bottle designed by artist and ornamentalist Pierre Marie which you can now add to your collection.
Pierre Marie reinterprets the iconic Martell Cordon Bleu with his exquisitely detailed designs which fuse ancestral craft technique with contemporary nuances in his own vision. He chronicles his visit to Maison Martell in Cognac with a limited edition bottle design that’s poetic and dreamy, accompanied by a specially composed poem entitled “The Vine and the Oak” — narrating the love affair between the two from which cognac is born.
The second design, called “The Epic Voyage” is exclusive to global travel retail. It illustrates the subsequent journey of the vine and the oak around the world with motifs of ships, trains and hot-air balloons, interspersed with red and gold clouds, a traditional Chinese symbol of good fortune. The blue ribbon of excellence, the emblem of this legendary blend, adds the finishing touch to the Martell Cordon Bleu.

Royal Salute 21 YO
Created in 1953 to celebrate the coronation of HRH Queen Elizabeth II, this commemorative blend, aged for a minimum of 21 years, is named after the tradition of the 21 Gun Salute that is fired at the Tower of London for Royal celebrations. Bring that grandeur to your dinner table with a bottle that’s not only rich in flavours, but also laced in heritage and history.
The Royal Salute 21 YO Blended Scotch Whisky Signature Blend is one of the most sought-after whiskies for ardent imbibers. On the nose, you get rich, fruity aromas and sweet fragrance of autumn flowers. The elegant aromas of sweet vanilla and a dry oakiness are enhanced with subtle notes of sherry and smoke.
The first sip unveils a delightful taste of sweet orange marmalade infused with bright notes of fresh pears. The second taste brings a rich medley of spices, intensified by a nuttiness of hazelnuts. As you allow the flavours to swirl a little longer, it unleashes a final warmth from hints of masculine smokiness.

The Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut champagne epitomises the heritage of Maison Perrier-Jouët and its tradition of brut champagnes. Described as a stylish and harmonious champagne, this is described as a refined and balanced cuvée layered with floral notes of Chardonnay, complemented by Champagne’s two red grape varieties, Pinot Noir and Pinor Meunier.
Notice the silvery gold in the glass, as the stylish cuvée bursts out in delicate floral aromas, rounded out by fresh fruits and hints of buttery brioche and vanilla. Both crisp and light on the palate, the flavours combine freshness and a lingering rich, generous finish to the very end. Best served at 10°C, the Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut champagne is best paired with white meats like chicken, as well as young leeks and grapefruit.
