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.
Created in 1888 by Edouard HINE to celebrate the victory of man over the phylloxera disease, which completely eradicated French vineyards. An exceptional blend of over 50 selected rare cognacs, coming exclusively from the Grande Champagne district.
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.
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.
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.
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.
