Hine Cognac Antique XO Premier Cru Cognac is the crème de la crème.


Thomas Hine has been distilling their delectable works along the banks of the La Charente River since 1763. When you're doing the same thing in the same spot for over 250 years, you're bound to get pretty good at it.
 
Hine is famous for having old vintages on hand. Every once in a while, they issue a special release that sells for the price of a car. Most of the time, though, they continue to produce a series of premiumaccessible, extra aged Eau-de-vies of the highest quality. Queen Elizabeth herself declared them the “royal suppliers of Cognac.” 
 
Hine Antique XO was originally created in 1920 by Georges Hine (grandfather of Bernard Hine, today’s Honorary Chairman). It was a blend of old fine Champagne Cognacs that he made for his family to enjoy. Old or “antique” Cognacs were unusual at the time. The fashion of the day was younger, “fresh” Cognacs. Georges’s personal nickname for the casks of mature vintage Cognacs in the ancient cellars beneath their Jarnac offices was “antiques”, and they still bear the same name to this day. 
 
Hine Cognac Antique XO Premier Cru has since become HINE's flagship. In the 1950s, François and Robert Hine were inspired by a crystal decanter that Robert had received as a wedding gift, so the packaging of Antique was changed to it’s current, decanter-shaped bottle. But the elegant bottle is only the beginning. Hine really is an essential for every Cognac lover out there.

Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavour normally found only in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based spirits: Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of ageing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
