A one-of-a-kind rarity. Produced from more than fifity eaux-de-vie, some that date back to pre-Phylloxera times (the late 1870s,) this tells a story of time and reflect the soul of the region. You’ll find an array of earthy, creamy notes and opulent leathery tones all accented by rich dried fruits and gingery spice. This has an incredibly approachable texture and is easily one of the finest Cognacs we’ve ever tasted. Presented in numbered wooden humidor. This includes a custom Baccarat crystal decanter and four tulip glasses designed by Bernard Hine himself. Luxury personified.
When he moved from England to Jarnac, France at the age of 16 to study, Thomas Hine probably didn't envision falling in love and marrying the daughter of a famous Cognac negociant. Alas, he did, and his hard work, business savvy, and dedication paid off and he earned control of the family business when his father-in-law passed away. Since 1763 this house has been producing some of the finest Cognacs in the region and in 1817 after bequeathal Hine gave his name to the company. Now its 6th generation steward, Bernard Hine continues the family legacy of hard work and dedication to quality, producing the finest Cognacs available.
