American comedian W. C. Fields once said that there are five reasons to imbibe: the arrival of a friend, one’s present or future thirst, the excellence of the cognac, or any other reason. At the recent Martell Prestige dinner organised with The Peak Circle, we celebrated all five reasons with four expressions of Martell – the Martell Cordon Bleu, the Martell XO, the Martell Chanteloup XXO and the L’Or de Jean Martell.

Paired with excellent dishes from Yellow Pot, guests went through a journey learning about the different Martell cognacs and the hundreds of eau-de-vie that made up each bottle. It was indeed excellent cognac.

The Peak Circle is an invitation-only community of changemakers and thought leaders. Beyond networking and creating connections, members also enjoy curated experiences exclusive to the Circle.
