How’s this for a superb collaboration Martell and one of Paris’s oldest jewellery houses – House of Boucheron – in celebration of the centenary year of Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac. We discovered the bottle in Monaco, months ago.
‘The Ultimate Jewel’ is a unique and iconic cognac bottle produced in the finest of crystal, diamond, gold and lapis-lazuli, the bottle is presented in a specially designed box in the blue colours of Martell and lined with an ivory veal leather skin interior.
The bottle is testimony to both Martell and Boucheron, with the symbol of a swallow and the name Martell linking gracefully to the infinity sign (representing 100 years of Cordon Bleu), along with Boucheron’s key codes of a cabochon and gold sculpture work through the godron.
This one off, collector piece was unveiled on the 22nd March 2012 at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco in front of guests such as H.S.H Prince Albert, H.S.H. Princess Charlène and H.R.H. Caroline de Hanovre at the Cordon Bleu Centenary celebrations.
It will now be taken on a tour around the world and displayed in different locations before being auctioned at the end of the year in China. It’s expected to fetch a price in excess of £100,000.
