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 vintage cognacs and other proprietary bottlings.
Camus Cognac was founded in 1863. Still in the same family ownership, now the fifth generation, it is one of the best selling cognac brands in the world. This is their Jubilee prestige cuvée presented in a gorgeous Baccarat crystal decanter.
A rare bottle of number 6 of a set of 7 released in 1988 as part of the Courvoisier Erté series. Erté was a Russian-born Art Deco artist who was commissioned to design these bottles to house a blend of Courvoisier's Grande Champagne Cognacs, some dating back to 1892. This edition was titled "L'Esprit du Cognac" and the collection is highly sought after.
A bottling of Hine Cognac from 1928. Hine's house style is rich and complex. This example was specially bottled for La Reserve, whose name it bears on the label. It would have been created by Georges Hine, who 8 years previously had created Antique, arguably Hine's best known bottling today.
