Thomas Hine left his home in Doreset at the age of sixteen. He arrived in Jarnac with a vision of learning to make Cognac, his father's favourite tipple. Two years before Louis XVI was deposed in 1796, Hine married into the family of an emiment Cognac nÃ©gociant. He made the Hine name famous by creating bespoke Cognac for the English. H for Hine VSOP is a harmonious assembly of twenty Eaux de Vie aged for a minimum of four years, a fine distillate of fruit grown to the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne appellations, the two finest Cru of Cognac.
Rich gold colour. An impression of lively freshness, a sensory journey, floral on the nose with notes of jasmine and acacia, iris and lily of the valley, apricots and vanilla. Velvet smooth on the palate, a complexity of dried pectin characters, marmalades and cocoa, vanilla toasty oak and sweet, scorched fruit flavours. H by HINE VSOP is superb on its own and the perfect base for many cocktails both long or short.
