HINE Cognac, like a fine perfume, takes you on a journey of discovery, a sensuous and evocative experience. Since 1763, the enchanting style of its elegant cognacs has formed the essence of HINE's prestige. Ageing in French oak barrels with delicate tannins, HINE cognacs evolve their delicate fruity aromas and subtle perfumes.A The Cognac region in south-west France lies some 110km north of Bordeaux and 450km south-west of Paris. In 1909, the Cognac appellation was legally defined and divided into six areas according to the style of the cognacs produced within each area. The finest of these are Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne. They produce very elegant, delicate cognacs with rich, flowery aromas and great ageing potential. HINE specialise in cognacs from these two areas.
