Playing the Wild Card: Prince Hubert de Polignac 888 Trunk Cognac
The Prince Hubert de Polignac 888 Trunk Cognac perfectly brings together the luxury of Prince Hubert de Polignac Cognac and the design qualities of T.T. Trunks, a famed Paris-based producer of exceptional trunks and bags. The 888 Trunk is said to epitomise the values of ‘forwardness, avant-garde and luxury’, providing space for an entire poker set underneath the bottle compartment.
Prince de Polignac Cognac is named after one of France's oldest noble families, members of which include Cardinal De Polignac (French ambassador in Poland and Rome in the 17th century), Countess Yolande de Polignac - a personal friend of Marie Antoinette - and Prince Jules de Polignac, a cabinet minister under Charles X. It was their descendant, Prince Hubert de Polignac, who eventually allowed the Cognac producer Mounier to use his name for one of their bottlings in 1947. After the trademark was registered, the Prince himself took to travelling the world to promote the brand, sealing its association with royalty, adventure and luxury.
