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.
