Mr Guerbé likes to describe his Vielle Grande Champagne Cognac as a 'young older man full temper and presence'.
Prestigious eau-de-vie, available in limited quantities. A Blend of eaux de vie in which the oldest are 40 years old.
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.
Created in 1920 by Georges HINE
90 years later, the House of HINE reinterprets Antique, now an XO Premier Cru.
Blend of more than 40 cognacs exclusively from grapes grown in Grande Champagne, the finest cru of the Cognac region.
All cognacs are aged for more than 10 years.
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 venerable Grande Champagne from the HINE family’s private reserves, proudly and sparingly released in a strictly limited number of bottles each year to be enjoyed by connoisseurs of truly exceptional cognacs.
HOMAGE is the quintessence of Hine’s style, dating back to the foundation of the House in 1763. Homage is both exquisite and original. It is composed of Early Landed cognacs aged in the United Kingdom coming from the best “terroirs” in the most prestigious region: Grande Champagne together with some extra old cognacs matured in Jarnac.
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.
