TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Though not as young as a VS, H by Hine VSOP is a relatively young cognac that leads with a sprightly and joyful character, a beautiful taste to introduce the world of cognac to any drinker.

Drawing its identity from the heart of 2 Premier Crus, this cognac is a blend of 20 eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne which is then aged in French oak barrels of Limousin or Troncais for a minimum of 4 years, H by Hine VSOP is a dark and delicate champagne cognac, youthful, expressive yet refined.

A deep amber in color, the bouquet is that of baked raisins, dried apricots and vanilla. The taste is medium-bodied and silky, revealing nuanced flavours of fresh apricots, white peaches and creme caramel followed by undertones of warm peppery spice.

PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS

A cognac that can only be described as full of joie de vivre, H by Hine VSOP is great served neat or on the rocks, it is a marvelous cognac for cocktails and mixed drinks. Prepare a cognac manhattan with vermouth and a dash of Angostura bitters or keep it simple and try this with a splash of Fentimans Ginger Ale or tonic water and garnish with a sprig of rosemary.

This cognac works well when paired with fresh crustaceans such as our Live Maine Lobster or Live King Crabs. And believe it or not, this is also marvelous when served frozen, enjoyed with a plate of sashimi.

THE ONLY COGNAC OF THE BRITISH MONARCHY

A history well entwined with royalty, cognac is loved by nobles around the world. From King Louis XIV granting aristocratic status to the family Frapin to the legendary love of Napoleon for fine Courvoisier, this drink has long been associated with royalty.

Though not as popular as other Cognac houses such as Hennessy, Rémy Martin, and Martell, Hine is well regarded for the quality and complexity of its cognacs. Founded in Charente, France nearly 250 years ago in 1763, the House of Hine was awarded a Royal Warrant by Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II and remains the only official supplier of cognac to the British monarchy to this day.

Store your bottle upright in a cool, dark place, ideally between 12 and 15°C. There is no need to refrigerate cognac. To maintain the moistness of the cork and prevent it from chipping, occasionally tilt your bottle horizontally two to three times, then restore it to the upright position. Opened bottles of cognac should be consumed within six months, as the alcohol may oxidize and begin to lose its flavor.
