Martell is renowned globally for its elevated, exquisite brand experiences and events that channel elegance, style, Haute fashion and gastronomy, and their most recent event in Lagos, themed “An Evening with Jeff Bankz” was no exception. Martell Cognac
Bringing together some of Lagos’ most stylish, the premium cognac brand put together an evening of culinary delights, curated by renowned chef Michael Elegbede of Itan.
The dress code called for “casual elegance,” and the guests certainly delivered, with Jeff keeping it stylish and dapper in custom David Wej. In keeping with the ambiance of the venue, a number of guests were exquisitely dressed in African inspired fashion.
While the event was curated to showcase Martell’s versatility and pairability particularly with fine dining, the fashion and looks were a highlight of the evening.
Known as the cognac brand with one of the richest heritages, in 1783, Martell was the first Maison to ship cognac to the United States, and produced the Martell Blue Swift, the first-ever spirit drink made of cognac VSOP and then finished in bourbon casks.
Martell is one of the oldest cognac houses with a strong heritage. It is a very audacious brand, thanks to key innovations in the cognac industry, including our latest “Blue Swift”, a VSOP cognac aged in bourbon casks.
Through Martell’s signature distillation process, the eaux-de-vie absorbs the rich aromatic tones of the bourbon cask. The result is Martell’s hallmark style: delicate notes of candied fruit and plum, complemented by the subtle sweetness of vanilla and toasted oak from the casks. Exceptionally smooth, with a rounded taste and unique character. Martell is owned by Pernod Ricard.
