A Very Special Cognac fit for a Prince
This elegant VS Cognac comprises a blend of eaux-de-vie from different growing regions, aged for a minimum of two years in French oak. Prince Hubert de Polignac VS Cognac has been the recipient of multiple awards over the years, with its copper liquid housing a fine balance of florals, oak and spice.
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 traveling the world to promote the brand, sealing its association with royalty, adventure and luxury.
