In Cognac (France) you have a lot of opportunities to visit one of the world famous destilleries. We tooked the chance to visit Martell one year ago. In April there were only some people there, it was like a private tour! Martell is the oldest of the major cognac houses. The cost of a visit (about one hour) are € 7,50. Before the visitor returns to a cognac tasting in the hall, he may have a look into the camp „Purgatory“ and „Paradise“ throw, in which you can see al lot of over a hundred years old brandy. The tour is highly recommended also by other visitors.
