A fresher, more fragrant style of Cognac for today’s palate

Martingale is fresh, fragrant, and refined; offering an exquisite balance of complexity and smoothness. True to Cognac, but with a structure reminiscent to whisky drinkers and a fragrant aroma evocative of fine wines.


From grape to glass

Maison Thomas is rare among Cognac producers; having complete control of the entire process from the vineyards to the final liquid enjoyed today. We like to think of this as being closer to the cycle of nature. Controlling the process means we don’t need to standardize the liquid with additives like boisé. Martingale is pure and fresh for your enjoyment.


Martingale's Celebrated Debut


Crafted from a blend of four of the most sought-after crus, with a notable Borderies content, Martingale embodies freshness, fragrance, and refinement.

    A bright, precious amber with deep golden and honeyed reflections.
  • NOSE
    Elegant and refined with notes of spring flowers, acacia, light vanilla, almonds and madeleine.
    Well-rounded with an abundance of freshness. Hints of tannins and oak balance perfectly with subtle floral and fruity notes.
    Soft, long, with lingering notes of elegant sandalwood denoting maturity and refinement.

My grandfather and my father always liked very old wines. My tastes are different. I like wines that have life and vitality to them.
I see no reason to be bound by the codes I have inherited. The old thinking was all about the robustness of Grande Champagne. Yes that has a role to play, but give me the floral characteristics of Borderies any day.
Palates change. It’s just a fact.
