Martell Trunk

The chosen few will be wined and dined in full public view, enjoying a four course meal.  After that, Martell Cellar Master, Benoit Fil, will offer the guests cognac tastings and showcase the Pinel & Pinel Martell Trunk.

The event is to promote both Martell and French craftsmanship to the UK market.  James Robinson, ambassador for Martell said, “We are delighted with the creation of Atelier Martell in the Harrods windows and the live dining experience hosted by Raymond Blanc will be a fantastic opportunity for us to share the world of Martell and the art of cognac with a wider audience.”

If you wish to purchase the Martell Trunk, it’s on sale for a cool £200,000 only from Harrods.  However, if you prefer just to catch a glimpse instead, it’s on display in the windows of the store until October 22nd 2011.
