With its new global campaign “Rise Above” and its new film, Martell XO pays tribute to Martell’s unique heritage, using its emblem, the swift. Legend has it that in 1715, a swift led Jean Martell to Cognac, where, at only 21 years old, he founded what would become the oldest of the great Houses of Cognac. The film was directed by James Gray in collaboration with Director of Photography Darius Khondji. With a sudden explosion of music, the four men fulfil their vision, while above them, swifts shoot up into the sky. The film features a bespoke soundtrack, performed by the members of the London Symphony Orchestra and mixed by Oscar-winning sound engineer Etienne Colin. Enjoy.
