Not thrilled with the blandness of the tour (compared to some tours of US Distilleries and German Breweries), but it is a nice place to stop and see. I enjoyed the shop which included a small taste-testing area (for a fee).

7.5 euros including tasting is good value for tour of the old site in Cognac. Unfortunately they do not manufacture here now but it is still worth a visit just for the smells alone. A different style to the Remy tour on little train that we have done in the past when our kids were young.

Looking on this website we were spoilt with choice, working out which distillery to visit and took pot luck. This was really worthwhile, firstly the basic price of 7.50 euros which my wife took, not being a cognac drinker. I upgraded to the 20 euro tasting tour. The difference being the cognac's being tasted. The tour lasted 90 minutes was... More

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.

We booked in advance for an English speaking tour. The basic tour is €7.50 which is the tour and a taster of one of the basic levels of Martell cognac (the VS or the VSOP). There are various levels of upgrade available where you get the tour and basic level taster but depending on how much extra you pay you... More

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

This tour is one of the many "commercial" tours available in the Cognac region and is well conducted. n interesting addition was the full history of the company from the founder, including a reconstructed home of Mr Martin. The tasting at the end was very informative. Sour note - this was the second tour we attended where people brought noisy... 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
