Birkedal Hartmann Halfdan Extra Gammel
Birkedal Hartmann's Halfdan Extra Gammel is a Cognac produced from the finest eaux-de-vie that the House had in its possession, waiting to be used for a special occasion. This occasion arose as a Cognac that has been made to honor the founder of the House, Halfdan Birkedal Hartmann who started the company in 1887. Allowed to patiently age for over 20 years, it is an Extra old blend with a beautiful balance of fruit and toasted notes.
Founder of the House, Halfdan Birkedal Hartmann moved to Cognac in 1887 and launched the companies Birkedal Hartmann and Hartmann Fils et Freres. He rapidly gained success and was welcomed by the French-British families who were already well established in the region as well as his Cognacs becoming renowned across the globe, particularly within North and South America. Today, four generations on, it is Kim Birkedal Hartmann who manages the House and is the supplier of VSOP Cognacs to the House of Lords in England.

About Birkedal Hartmann Cognac
Birkedal Hartmann is a rare example of a successful cognac house that today collaborates with producers and master blenders rather than producing its own eaux-de-vie. This allows Birkedal Hartmann to focus on modern marketing and distribution strategies, as the production is entirely outsourced. This does not however imply that the tradition of the house, founded in the late 1800s, has been neglected. On the contrary: With its extremely smart marrying of traditional and contemporary culture, the cognac house Birkedal Hartmann managed to be amongst the first to launch a product with US celebrity rapper Ludacris. The cognac called CONJURE has shown to be a huge success in the US market, positioning Birkedal Hartmann as one of the most innovative cognac companies today.
