HINE 1975 Millesime Vintage Cognac
HINE has built up what has become an unrivalled collection of old vintages over the years. The reputation and demand surrounding these vintages only grows as the House releases a tiny amount for sale each year.
Each of these vintages is unique; influenced by the climate that year, the storage conditions and the aging process. Connoisseurs hold these cognacs in extremely high regard, with them only being sold after twenty years of age.
1975 was a notable year for the quality of both wines and distilled spirits. This Cognac is made from the grapes of a single harvest in the Grande Champagne terroir and aged in Limousin oak barrels in Jarnac, France.

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”.
