Together, Martell and the luxury french malletier Pinel & Pinel, have created a solution for those who love the finest bottles but sometimes just cannot transport them with the class and refinement they deserve. This solution is embodied in the Martell Trunk.
Possessor of a refined elegance, the Martell Trunk is a piece of 2.06 meters high, 2.20 wide and 0.70 deep, making it the largest suitcase ever produced. Made from materials such as whole-grain leather, silver, copper, oak, glass and linen, every detail was meticulously taken into account by Pinel & Pinel so the cognac might be the center of attention. But the impressive appearance of Martell Trunk is just the surface.
Inside the trunk you can find a large and exquisite collection of the finest Martell products like Cordon Bleu, XO, Noblige, Création Grand Extra and L’Or by Jean Martell. It also includes four exclusive and unique blends by Martell with 7 bottles of each, adding up to 28, in which the subtleties and identity in the distinct flavor of Martell are exacerbated.
However, the purpose of the Martell Trunk is not only being a simple bottle’s trunk, but also contains fine accessories that complete the tasting experience that only a good Martell liquor can give. Among these accessories are fine metal plates, steel utensils, and Alexandre Turpault and Coucke’s napkins, a cocktail glass and one created by Schott, as well as a Sèvres tulip style glass and a balloon snifter.
A good cognac tasting would be incomplete without the accompaniment of a good cigar, so the Martell Trunk also includes a humidifier, a cutter, lighter, matches, and a crystal and mahogany ashtray. For completeness, it also has “Roi Soleil” candles by Trudon, whose scent was created to refer to the Palace of Versailles, as well as an elegant spray with the same scent.
