Robb Report VIPs Toast to 300 Years of Martell Cognac

New York’s Club Macanudo played host to an evening of Martell Cognac and Cohiba cigars…

In March, Robb Report invited a select group of VIPs to Club Macanudo on New York’s Upper East Side for an exclusive night with Martell Cognac. Live jazz played as guests arrived at the mahogany-and-leather-clad smoking lounge. Paired with Cohiba cigars, two cocktails—the Martell Sidecar and Martell Ginger—were served alongside a selection of hors d’oeuvres. The highlight of the event came as a Martell brand ambassador introduced a flight of three premier cognacs: The Martell XO came out first, followed by Martell Creation, which exhibits superior Grand Champagne notes. Finally, the Martell L’OR de Jean Martell, blended using over 400 rare eaux-de-vie, made a memorable impression for its notes of citrus, fruit, and gingerbread. This year marks the 300th anniversary of the legendary cognac house founded at the height of French L’Art de Vivre. To close the event, two lucky raffle winners won 750 mL bottles of Martell Cordon Bleu. (martell.com; cohiba.com)
