A reader from the Netherlands sent us these Martell Cognac Bottles.
The Reader writes “My grandfather had a bar in the 1960’s. When the bar closed, he put everything, from liquor to glasses, into a basement underneath his flat. Now my dad and I are cleaning out his legacy, and found these bottles in a wooden desk. I’m a whiskey lover, and don’t know anything about cognac, but I’m interested if, and what the story is behind these bottles.”
