Hermitage is a relatively young cognac producer that has been as its mission to create an authentic and natural product. A lot of research has gone into finding small cognac distillers to create Hermitage's product range. The intention is to support small producers in order to support them. In terms of quality, the goal is to make a cognac with character, not one that mixes young cognacs to create a generic taste. The blends are from single producers and the Hermitage brand focuses on making these without additives or caramel for colouring. Hermitage Cognac, which belongs to the company Brandyclassics, based in the UK, prides itself by locating local heroes from the cognac industry and distributing their products under one umbrella.
