In this section are the crème de la crème of our Cognacs - rare discontinued bottlings, ancient vintages from long-forgotten producers and priceless special cuvées from the world's most famous houses: in other words, this section of our site contains some of the finest spirits ever made.
An 1848 vintage Cognac bottled by Bordeaux négociants J.J. Mortier. Given that the company was only founded in 1889, the contents of this bottle may well be over 40 years old. Louis Mortier, the founder, was manager at the prestigious Château Lafite Rothschild between 1900 and 1920.
An 1893 vintage cognac from Denis Mounié, a producer founded when Justin Denis and Henri Mounié joined forces and merged their vineyards in 1838. The spirit is packaged in a solid crystal decanter made by Baccarat.
A wonderful large old 2.25 litre bottle of 1906 vintage Fine Champagne cognac from Croizet in amazing condition for its age. Fine Champagne means that the eaux-de-vie used came only from Grande Champagne & Petite Champagne, the two best regions.
The top of the range cognac from Courvoisier - L'Esprit de Cognac. An incredible blend of eaux-de-vie, the youngest from the 1930s and stretching back to Napoleonic times. A very special cognac, presented in a Lalique crystal decanter.
A real collector's item - a one of a kind bottling given that Hennessy never retail vintage Cognacs. This was bottled especially for Mr Gollings, the owner of Mill House who won the Hennessy Gold Cup in 1963. Mr Gollings was born in 1905 and the horse shared the same trainer as the Hennessy family horses, Fulke Walwyn.
Frapin Cuvée 1888 honours company founder Piere Frapin, who in 1888 selected the cuvee that won a Gold Medal at the World Fair in Paris. Some of the cognacs used in the assemblage pre-date 1888, and a high proportion of the little-seen Folle Blanche grape is used. Presented in a crystal decanter with a spiral of gold thread and a 24-carat gold stopper, plus a gilded fob watch containing a block of Pierre Frapin perfume.
A magnum of Rémy Martin's famed super-premium cognac, the Louis XIII, presented in a large numbered Baccarat crystal decanter. This set includes the presentation box and numbered stopper, but not the numbered booklet.
A very special release of pre-phylloxera cognac from the 1848 vintage, the year of the February Revolution in France which led to the Second Republic ruled by Napoleon III. Bottled in 2002 from the private collection of the company's former chairman Jacques Hardy.
