H by Hine VSOP

Coachella in a Bottle

A cognac that tastes of adven¬≠ture and orig¬≠i¬≠nal¬≠i¬≠ty, H by Hine is a VSOP or ‚Äč‚ÄúVery Spe¬≠cial Old Pale‚ÄĚ cognac that is full of joie de vivre and whim¬≠si¬≠cal¬≠i¬≠ty sure to offer some¬≠thing new to both novice and sea¬≠soned cognac drinkers. 

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Though not as young as a VS, H by Hine VSOP is a rel¬≠a¬≠tive¬≠ly young cognac that leads with a spright¬≠ly and joy¬≠ful char¬≠ac¬≠ter, a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful taste to intro¬≠duce the world of cognac to any drinker.

Draw¬≠ing its iden¬≠ti¬≠ty from the heart of 2 Pre¬≠mier Crus, this cognac is a blend of 20 eaux-de-vie from Grande Cham¬≠pagne and Petite Cham¬≠pagne which is then aged in French oak bar¬≠rels of Lim¬≠ou¬≠sin or Tron¬≠cais for a min¬≠i¬≠mum of 4 years, H by Hine VSOP is a dark and del¬≠i¬≠cate cham¬≠pagne cognac, youth¬≠ful, expres¬≠sive yet refined.

A deep amber in col¬≠or, the bou¬≠quet is that of baked raisins, dried apri¬≠cots and vanil¬≠la. The taste is medi¬≠um-bod¬≠ied and silky, reveal¬≠ing nuanced flavours of fresh apri¬≠cots, white peach¬≠es and cr√®me caramel fol¬≠lowed by under¬≠tones of warm pep¬≠pery 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 mar¬≠velous cognac for cock¬≠tails and mixed drinks. Pre¬≠pare a cognac man¬≠hat¬≠tan with ver¬≠mouth and a dash of Angos¬≠tu¬≠ra bit¬≠ters or keep it sim¬≠ple and try this with a splash of Fen¬≠ti¬≠mans Gin¬≠ger Ale or ton¬≠ic water and gar¬≠nish with a sprig of rosemary.

This cognac works well when paired with fresh crus¬≠taceans such as our Live Maine Lob¬≠ster or Live King Crabs. And believe it or not, this is also mar¬≠velous 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 pop¬≠u¬≠lar as oth¬≠er Cognac hous¬≠es such as Hen¬≠nessy, R√©my Mar¬≠tin, and Martell, Hine is well regard¬≠ed for the qual¬≠i¬≠ty and com¬≠plex¬≠i¬≠ty of its cognacs. Found¬≠ed in Char¬≠ente, France near¬≠ly 250 years ago in 1763, the House of Hine was award¬≠ed a Roy¬≠al War¬≠rant by Appoint¬≠ment to Her Majesty the Queen Eliz¬≠a¬≠beth II and remains the only offi¬≠cial sup¬≠pli¬≠er of cognac to the British monar¬≠chy to this day.

Storage Instructions

Store your bot¬≠tle upright in a cool, dark place, ide¬≠al¬≠ly between 12 and 15¬įC. There is no need to refrig¬≠er¬≠ate cognac. To main¬≠tain the moist¬≠ness of the cork and pre¬≠vent it from chip¬≠ping, occa¬≠sion¬≠al¬≠ly tilt your bot¬≠tle hor¬≠i¬≠zon¬≠tal¬≠ly two to three times, then restore it to the upright posi¬≠tion. Opened bot¬≠tles of cognac should be con¬≠sumed with¬≠in six months, as the alco¬≠hol may oxi¬≠dize and begin to lose its flavor.
