XO Extra 1755, the finest cognac from Gautier
A blend of very old “eaux de vie”, some that have been aged in the “Paradis” wine cellars, this XO Cognac Extra has exceptional complexity and aromatic richness. Its splendid gold marked decanter sublimates the “1755” warm amber and intense colour. A prestigious gift for the true Cognac connoisseurs.
A blend of more than 40 cognacs drawn from both the Grande and Petite Champagne districts and aged for more than one generation.
ANTIQUE XO is the house’s flagship, first blended by Thomas George HINE in 1920.
In 1791 young Thomas HINE left the family home in Dorset, England for Jarnac in France to learn the language. He probably would have eventually returned home. Fate, however, intervened when he fell in love with Françoise Elisabeth, daughter of a great cognac family. He married her in 1797 and patiently learnt the art of cognac making, which he was to elevate to its highest form of expression.
Created in 1991 by Bernard & Jacques HINE, the great great great great grandsons of Thomas HINE to celebrate to bicentenary of their ancestor's arrival in France. They selected their most prestigious cognac, TRIOMPHE, for this occasion.
