XO cognacs must be aged a minimum of six years, although many producers use much older spirits in their assemblages. XO cognacs benefit from this extended wood ageing, and are generally extremely smooth and rich in flavour. This means they are unsuitable for all but the most premium cocktails and are generally best served neat after a good meal.

Hine Antique XO has always been the connoisseurs' choice from the range - and now it's had an upgrade, so it should be even better. This Premier Cru has been aged a minimum 10 years and has been upgraded from Fine Champagne to Grande Champagne, meaning that all the eaux-de-vie used in the assemblage are from the best region of Cognac.
Aged around 30 years in oak before bottling, this Hors d'Age from Guillon Painturaud retains the house style of medium-weighted spirits still very vibrantly fruity even at this great age. This style of cognac will appeal to fans of Remy Martin rather than some of the more weighty big-hitters like Hennessy.
The original 'extra-old' cognac, first bottled in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy for family and friends. Darker and much more complex than the VSOP, with appealing leather and tobacco notes and a touch of spice - a great cigar cognac.
Please note this is limited to 3 bottles per customer
