Hine Antique is released to market

30 April, 2010

Hine has released its new Hine Antique XO Premier Cru to markets worldwide.

The bespoke blend of more than 40 Cognacs – exclusively from the Grande Champagne district – has an rrp of?£120 per bottle.

The average age of the Cognac in the blend is 20 years while the oldest Cognac dates back to 1944.

Hine describes Antique as having a “provocative perfume of spices, vanilla and liquorice”, intermingled with hints of chocolate and baked apple.

The bottle retains Hine’s traditional decanter shape but features a polished pewter-effect plaque, decorated with silk-screening and embossed branding.

It is closed with a matching stopper, and presented in an embossed red and grey gift box. ?Originally created in 1920, Antique was unusual at the time because it was a blend of old Cognac when young Cognac was in fashion.

Hine is distributed in the UK by Pol Roger.

The limitations of Instawines

Picture the scene. You put your key in the keyhole, shove the door with your shoulder, drop your bags and look down. There, beaming up at you, is some relative or friend’s smug postcard with sandy beaches, Piña Coladas and palm trees (or, these days, an in nity pool and a detox smoothie) with a literal or metaphorical “wish you were here” written large.
