The term 'VSOP' is generally understood to stand for 'Very Special Old Pale', although the Bureau National Interprofessionnel de Cognac lists the official definition as 'Very Superior Old Pale'.

A gift pack containing a bottle of the splendid Hine VSOP and two brandy glasses. Hine is a terrific (and historic) cognac house and their VSOP is approachable, smooth and fruity, with a hint of spices.
An old bottling of Martell's best selling VSOP Medaillon Cognac. The historic house was founded in 1715 by Jean Martell. Martell are famed for using a high proportion of Borderies grapes, giving their Cognacs a nuttier taste. We estimate this was bottled in the 1970s.
