Martell Cognac celebrated its landmark 300th anniversary with spectacular party at the Palace of Versailles in France. 300 VIP guests from more than 15 countries attended the spectacular evening, including Martell’s Ambassador and Guest of Honour at the event, the internationally-acclaimed actress Diane Kruger.
After a private tour of the Palace, guests experienced an exclusive fly past over Versailles by the Patrouille de France and an exclusive preview of an experiential exhibition representing each stage of Martell’s unique cognac expertise. After tasting cocktails created especially for the House’s Tricentenaire, all 300 guests took their seats for a fully immersive gastronomic experience designed around Jean Martell’s original journey to Cognac, created exclusively for Martell by the world-renowned, innovative French chef, Paul Pairet.
“The Palace of Versailles – considered by many to be the ‘birthplace’ of Art de Vivre – provided a spectacular setting to celebrate 300 years of Martell and I hope all the guests got to discover a little bit of the French way of living for themselves this evening,” commented Diane Kruger.
