You can tour the facilities with a bilingual guide (French-English). The guide will explain the history of the brand, how cognac is made, bottled and shipped around the world. Tasting at the end of the tour is a must.

This was a well organised tour at a reasonable price - 7.5 euro for the basic tour with a tasting and then you could pay more to taste better quality cognacs. We took the English tour and the girl was very informative. The tour lasted about 75 minutes and then we were able to spend time tasting. The prices in... More

We visited Cognac recently while staying near Aubeterre area and we had a tour of the Martell Cognac Distillery. We were able to park in the grounds which was very handy and had an English tour for just the three of us who were the only English speaking people around at the time. It was a very interesting tour, very... More

We live in the area and often take friends there and are always amazed to discover something new every time! The tour is well planned, covers all age groups and takes about an hour although you might end up spending longer in the tasting room afterwards!

There was myself,my daughter,her partner and my 3 y.o. grandaughter and no one else. Couldn't... More
