And another bottle for our “You’ve got a bottle?” section: A reader sent his Martell Medallion bottle. Any ideas?
(If you also have a bottle you would like to submit, please use our form)
This bottle was given to my mother as a present some time in the 1950’s in Australia, she is not sure exactly when. It was given to her by an elderly gentleman who said that it was already then quite old – the bottle of cognac, not the man himself!
The bottle and label are in good shape. There is no number anywhere that I can see on the label. The label says J&F Martell, Medallion Fine Champagne Liqueur Brandy Cognac, V.S.O.P. The seal and cork are intact, but again no number.
Further: Established in 1715 in the reign of Louis XIV. Bottled in France, 1 Pint.
We are looking for information about this cognac, age, if it is worth anything or has any value. Any information is much appreciated.
As always: Thank you for your comments!
