Cognac is rarely born of a single eau-de-vie or a single growing area, but generally from a blend of different ages and crus, sometimes up to a hundred of them.
It can be made also exclusively from certain “cru”, for example exclusively from “Grande Champagne”, but of different ages.
Bernard HINE & Nicholas Freeman, the late chairman of UK Havana cigar importers, Hunters & Frankau, combined their lifetime experience to produce this unique cognac, especially created for the cigar connoisseur.
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.
