The House of Hine stands on the banks of River Charente, deep within Cognac country. The manor is one of the oldest in Jarnac and has always been the headquarters of the operation, little has changed in 250 years. From the quay right out in front of the estate, destined for the first stage of their journey to all parts of the world, barges have been loading Hine's precious Cognacs since the 18th century. Under the ancient cellars behind, always kept locked and under strict security, barrels of the finest Cognac vintages have been ageing for over two centuries.
The greater Cognac region is divided into six zones, based upon their differing characteristics of soil, sunlight and clime. Hine sources all of its Eaux-de-vie from Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, the two finest appellations of Cognac. Aged in small hand coopered barrels of French oak, Hine matures all Cognac longer than the legal requirements to ensure that the promise of the most finest spirit is delivered. In 1962, Hine was appointed a rare Royal Warrant as official Cognac supplier to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Today, it is still the only Cognac House to hold this honour
