A Century of Cognac History: Talent de Thomas Hine Cognac

The Talent de Thomas Hine Hors d'Age Cognac is not just a Cognac, it's an experience. The hors d’age age classification here is an understatement; while it means the youngest eaux-de-vie in this blend are at least 30 years old, we know that some of the older components date back to the 19th Century. Exclusively made of Ugni Blanc grapes of the Grande Champagne Premier Cru appellation, this Cognac is not just about appearances - it is the very essence of quality. The Hine family have been putting down casks for this blend for over a century, allowing their high humidity cellars to facilitate a slow maturation process. Safe behind no less than two locks, the keys to these casks have been handed down the generations until Bernard Hine finally chose to present the result. And what a result!

The inspiration for the name of this Cognac comes, of course, from Thomas Hine himself. At the age of sixteen, Thomas travelled from his native Dorset to France, hoping to learn the art of making eau-de-vie. After years of travelling and working across various wine-growing regions, he eventually settled in Jarnac to work as a clerk for a large Cognac house. It was here that he met a young woman by the name of Françoise-Elisabeth - the daughter of his employer - and shortly married her. Now a member of the family, Thomas was able to take his work to the next level to rapidly expand his father-in-law’s business, and in 1817 he finally renamed the company Thomas Hine & Co. Today, Hine is run by sixth-generation Company Director Bernard Hine, proudly carrying on the extraordinary talent and ingenuity of his ancestors. 

Presentation of the Bottle

Talent de Thomas Hine Cognac is served in a decorative crystal carafe signed by Baccarat, engraved all over with delicate grapevines and the signature Hine stag emblem. It is presented in a striking case hand-made from precious Macassar ebony and Honduras mahogany, individually numbered, and accompanied by four crystal tulip glasses designed by Bernard Hine. The case is also a functional cigar humidor, the final quirky touch to an exceptionally luxurious package.  

How to Enjoy Talent de Thomas Hine Cognac

The stunning presentation leaves no doubt as to how to enjoy this Cognac. The accompanying tulip glasses are perfect for appreciating its aromatic and sumptuous aromas; combine with a fine cigar for an experience of pure opulence.

About Hine Cognac

Located in the heart of the Grande Champagne, the premium wine growing area of the Cognac region, the house of Hine has been producing some of the most exquisite Cognacs for six generations, when it was better known as T Hine & Co Cognac. The estate boasts an exceptional 173 acres of vineyards, and the house has a very special tradition of producing relatively small quantities - but with a very high standard in quality. One of their trademarks is to store their vintage casks in damp cellars in Bristol, England. This way, the Thomas Hine Cognac goes through a uniquely different ageing process due to the humidity of the seaside town, which differs somewhat to that of the southwestern coast of France. These highly priced vintage bottles are called “Hine Early-Landed Vintage Cognac”.
