Special Cuvées are cognacs that are not labelled with the standard classifications of VS, VSOP and XO. Included in this section are Napoleon and Extra cognacs (aged, like XOs, a minimum of six years before bottling) alongside a great variety of other proprietary bottlings.
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.
First bottled in 1912 by Edouard Martell, this classic cognac is Martell's flagship brand and has become synonymous with the highest standard of quality. Cordon Bleu remains many connoisseurs' favourite expression of Martell.
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.
Tiffon's Cognac Grande Champagne is a blend of Cognacs from the top cru in the region and was selected by Richard Braastad. The family have been making Cognac at their Chateau de Triac estate since 1875.
Remy Martin's 1738 Accord Royal Cognac was created to sit between their VSOP and XO. It is named in honour of the Accord Royal granted by King Louis XV to Rémy Martin in 1738, allowing the firm to use his land to plant vines. This is a rich and robust Cognac.
The Paradis de Famille is the oldest currently available Cognac from the Drouet domain. It contains Eau-de-Vie of between 25 and 30 years old combined to make Drouet’s most refined and elegant Cognac. This Cognac has won many medals over the last few years including a Gold Medal at the Concours Général Agricole Paris in 2007.
A rich Grande Champagne cognac using old and increasingly rare Folle Blanche grapes as well as the more common Ugni Blanc. Bache Gabrielsen cognac is one to look out for - the quality coming from this producer is superb, and it's only a matter of time before they attract more mainstream attention.
A bottle of Monnet Anniversaire Cognac, which we estimate was bottled in the 1960s. The house was once run Jean Monnet, who would go on to be one of the 11 founding fathers of the European Union, along with a certain Winston Churchill.
