Martell Present La French Touch

Finesse comes as second nature to the French, it’s almost a prerequisite for every man, woman, and child to have a certain “je ne sais quoi” about them. So when world famous cognac house Martell decided to collaborate with prominent DJ and Producer Etienne de Crecy (aka Super Discount) on a limited edition bottle design, I had to sit up and take note.

La French Touch is a specially commissioned neon blue bottle of Martell’s popular VS cognac as a vivid tribute to Parisian nights. The French Touch was a party series that sprung up in Paris in the 80s and has been instrumental in pioneering the French house music scene. The bottle even glows in night venues, perfect for those sipping cognac while dancing the night away to rhythmic synths.

La French Touch

“For the bottle I needed a dark, deep and dense background, in order to get the neons to vibrate. The famous Martell blue seemed the obvious choice. Especially as the colour also symbolizes night time, with all its electricity and its attractions.” – Etienne de Crecy

La French Touch is the first in a series of limited edition bottle launches and as a massive Martell fan, I can’t wait for what’s in store.

La French Touch VS by Martell is available in Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Amazon and Amathus stores priced at £26.25. We’ve included the recipe for the Nouveau Carre cocktail created by Martell Brand Ambassador Matthias Lataille
