Ageing in French oak barrels with delicate tannins, HINE cognacs evolve their delicate fruity aromas and subtle perfumes.

We treat all personalised bottles individually, taking our time and experience to set out your message to create the most impactful bottle decoration possible. Here, the aim is not to mask the flavours with dominant woody tones, but to enhance them as part of a delicate exchange between the eau-de-vie and oak staves. This is an exuberant cognac with a floral nose and a sweet fruity flavour - balanced out with light spicy notes. True to the Hine House style, Rare VSOP is distinctly elegant and loved by connoisseurs and novices alike, thanks to its velvety texture and long finish. Rare is the classic expression of the House of Hine, and a benchmark for its entire collection of Cognacs.The palate is velvety smooth, thanks to its harmonious blend of 20 cognacs aged for a minimum of 4 years, from grapes grown in the Grande Champagne and the Petite Champagne, the 2 finest crus in the Cognac region. What marks Hine apart is that the casks are sent to the United Kingdom to mature a different temperature and humidity than other Cognacs, creating a special vitality in the drink.

This blend of more than twenty eaux-de-vie is the reflection of the House’s style: fruit driven, light wood influence, broad aromatic profile and velvety mouthfeel. All the elements of this sophisticated liquid have been aged for more than a decade, developing hints of chocolate and baked apple, and aromas of spices and liquorice.

As a tribute to Thomas Hine, an adventurous Englishman who travelled from England in the 18th century to discover the subtleties within Cognac, the cellar master Eric Forget has developed this original spirit, characterised by orange peel notes, nuts and honey flavours. The identity of Hine comes from the village of Bonneuil, where 70 hectars of Ugni Blanc grapes provide the ingredients for the blending process. It is the only cognac house to have been granted this honour, renewed every five years since, thanks to its dedication to high-quality artisanal cognac production.

Adventurous, lively and elegant, it is the ideal sidekick for daring cocktails and a flamboyant soloist when served neat with a dash of cold tonic. Wandering across the Paradis and Chai des Millésimes, you will discover the singularities of the Hine House, sole official cognac supplier to Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II.The liquid is then separated from the ‘almond mulch’ giving on the one hand almond flavoured brandy and on the other alcoholic almonds. Or simply over ice with tonic, cider or ginger ale, garnished with a twist of lime, cucumber or rosemary. Created in 1763, Hine Cognac is more than 250 years old; it is proudly one of the oldest houses in the region. For over 260 years, generations of dedicated craftsmen and women have kept a keen eye on ensuring the longevity of our independent and family-owned heritage and recognized know-how that make our Maison’s cognacs one of a kind.
