For the past three centuries cognac has been almost universally recognised as the finest of all the spirits that are distilled from grapes. It has many incomparable qualities: fruitiness, subtlety of bouquet, intensity, warmth and, above all, the complexity of the many thousands of styles and flavours from a (predominantly) single grape variety.

A single estate cognac from Frapin, produced at the Chateau de Fontpinot and the aged for many years to give a deep and rich cognac with candied fruit and rancio. IWSC 2012 - Gold Outstanding Medal - Cognac
A special edition cognac from Hine, produced by Cellar Master Eric Forget to honour Thomas Hine, the house's founder. It's a blend of three early landed Grande Champagne cognacs from 1984, 1986 and 1987 which were matured in the UK, as well as some extra old cognac from the Hine cellars in Jarnac.
A gift set, complete with wooden holder comprising a 20cl bottle of each of Leopold Gourmel's 10 year old Age du Fruit, 15 year old Age des Fleurs and 20 year old Age des Épices Cognacs. A perfect gift for any Cognac connoisseur.
An old bottling of Delamain Pale & Dry, their excellent long-aged XO Cognac. Due to the back label stating an old address for Metzendorff, the importers, we estimate that this bottle dates from the early 1990s.
Hine Antique XO has always been the connoisseurs' choice from the range - and now it's had an upgrade, so it should be even better. This Premier Cru has been aged a minimum 10 years and has been upgraded from Fine Champagne to Grande Champagne, meaning that all the eaux-de-vie used in the assemblage are from the best region of Cognac.
A bottle of 20 year old Frapin Cognac distilled in 1991. Starting as winegrowers in 1270, the Frapin family moved into distillation in due course. Based in Chateau Fontpinot in Segonzac, Frapin are one of the highly regarded producers in the region.
Aged around 30 years in oak before bottling, this Hors d'Age from Guillon Painturaud retains the house style of medium-weighted spirits still very vibrantly fruity even at this great age. This style of cognac will appeal to fans of Remy Martin rather than some of the more weighty big-hitters like Hennessy.
