They are unabashedly artful, without embarrassment or hesitation, beautiful objects.
LE COGNAC has selected a few rare and exceptional Cognacs, often produced in limited quantities and superbly presented. They were conceived to be unforgettable gifts to some one or to yourself.
Magnificent decanters, exclusive wooden boxes, luxury presentation, these Cognacs from the oldest reserves of the Houses come in the most refined presentation that the French art de vivre can offer.
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.
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.
