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.
A very limited and sought after cognac from the house of Delamain. A blend of their finest old Grande Champagne cognacs presented in a Baccarat decanter itself sat inside a fan-shaped gift box styled after an old school camera's bellows.
L'Esprit de Cognac is Courvoisier's ne plus ultra expression of one of the world's noblest spirits, and has been crafted from some of the finest Cognac vintages of the last 200 years - the youngest eau-de-vie used in the assemblage is from 1930, while the oldest dates from the Napoleonic era.
This bottle can only be described as an extraordinary piece of history. We estimate that this cognac was produced prior to the phylloxera infestation that ravaged the vineyards of France in the 1800s. One can only imagine how different the contents of this bottle are in comparison to the Cognacs of today.
A very special edition of Hine's Triomphe cognac, the Talent de Thomas Hine celebrates the arrival in France of the company's founder. The cognac is presented in a Baccarat crystal decanter with 4 crystal glasses and is packaged in an ebony and mahogany cigar humidor.
One of the oldest cognacs available anywhere, this is from the historic Sazerac de Forge et Fils house, which produced the cognac used in the creation of the first Sazerac cocktail in New Orleans in the middle of the 19th century.
Part of Hardy's Essential Elements Perfection series, Lumière (Light in English) is blended from pre-phylloxera cognac put aside by house founder Antoine Hardy in the 1870s. Distilled from 100% Colombard grapes all from the area now known as Grande Champagne this is an incredible, rare old cognac.
A lovely old bottle of rare cognac bottled in the early 1900s, from the legendary house of Sazerac de Forge & Fils. The original cork and wax seal was replaced by us, as the the cork had shrunk and was liable to fall into the bottle.
One of the largest and most impressive packages we have ever seen. Frapin's exquisite Cuvee Francois Rabelais cognac, a blend of pure Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, in a hanging, metal detailed carafe styled after a pocket watch. The cognac is stunning and the presentation second to none - a great collector's piece.
Hennessy Timeless was created in 1999 to showcase the company’s past and look forward to the future promised by the new Millennium. Sadly only 2000 bottles of this nectar were released - but quality such as this just can't be mass-produced. Blended from 11 of the finest vintages of the 20th century, this is a stunning connoisseur's cognac.
