Pineau is the taste of summer
Sitting outside on a warm, balmy evening is the perfect time to try Pineau des Charentes. Made in the cognac producing region of France, newly distilled eau de vie is mixed with grape juice before being aged. The result is a wonderfully fresh, fruity flavour and with an abv of 17 - 18%, it is perfect for every occasion.
Serve cold as an aperitif, or a dessert wine, or if you’re looking for a longer drink, it is the ideal base for a summer cocktail - try our Pineau Royale recipe for something truly sumptuous. Most of our wonderful selection of white, rosé and red pineau have age statements and remember, the older the pineau, the more intense the flavour.
So celebrate the warmer weather with a taste of summer – Pineau des Charentes.
Old Brandy Bottle Valuation Service
We are pleased to announce the introduction of our new Valuation Service. In response to an increasing number of requests for Old Brandy Bottle Valuations we have formalised the service that we offer.
If you would like to know more about the history and value of an old bottle of brandy, just send us the information requested on our Valuation Service page. You will then receive an indication of its worth – over or under £250 – and whether or not a detailed, historical valuation is recommended. If the latter is required you will be able to purchase your Valuation online.
Sometimes rare bottles can be worth substantial sums of money – take a look at our Very Old Cognacs.

Hermitage Provenance Cognacs Win Masters Medals
We are delighted to announce that three of our new Hermitage Provenance range of single estate cognacs, produced for the Asian market, have won medals at the 2014 Cognac Masters Awards.
The Hermitage Provenance Grand Champagne 10 year old, Grand Champagne 25 year old and Petite Champagne 30 year old were all awarded Masters Medals. This exciting array of awards proves that it is not just us that think our cognacs are the best, the judges were obviously bowled over too!
Yet another accolade for our exceptional Hermitage Cognac Range - single estate, luxury, vintage cognacs with age statements – surely the most decorated cognac house in existence today.
A Great Collection of Medal Winners
Hermitage Cognacs were on top of the podium again in July 2013, this time at the highly prestigious International Wine and Spirits Competition.
Recognising the wonderful quality of carefully aged, single estate cognacs, the judges placed both the Hermitage Segonzac 25 Year Old Grande Champagne Cognac and the Hermitage Chez Richon 2000 Grande Champagne Cognac at the top of their respective classes and awarded them each a Gold Medal.
These latest awards add to Hermitage Cognac’s vast medal haul to date which surely makes it one of the most successful Cognac Houses in existence.
Hermitage single estate cognacs
Hermitage Cognacs are a range of carefully selected single estate vintage cognacs designed for the most discerning of professionals and connoisseurs. Over the years our relationship with the scions of family firms who have produced the finest cognacs from the top regions in France has enabled Brandyclassics to choose and design award winning cognacs. Our long relationships with these old cognac professionals has enabled us to identify closely with our customers’ needs. Age statements and vintages are now recognised by discerning customers as satisfying their individual needs unlike the generic highly blended VS, VSOP and XO cognacs.
The extraordinary quality of Hermitage Pure Vintage Cognacs is matched only by their extraordinary value, a further advantage of working directly with the Masters of Cognac.
The finest supplier of single estate vintage brandies in the world
For more than thirty years Brandyclassics have been associated with some of the oldest and finest cognac and brandy producers in the world. Our need for these superb spirits is only matched by our customers, who seek single estate brandies of extraordinary quality which have matured in old cellars for hundreds of years.
Our range of pure cognacs is the largest in the country and entirely free of the sugar syrup and caramel additives used by the big blenders. They satisfy the needs of many of the finest hotels and restaurants in the world, where vintage and individuality are synonymous with their success. Only when you experience our nectars from a past era will you recognise the quality of vintage and single estate from Brandyclassics.
Armagnacs, the fruit of the Gascons
France’s oldest brandy, Armagnac has been produced for more than 700 years. Armagnacs are made from several grape varieties and distilled in the traditional Armagnaçais continuous single still. There are hundreds of small producers, who, unlike cognac, are not dominated by big houses. Vintages and age statements come much easier here and there are a wealth of producers each with fruity and delicious armagnacs.
Our pages are full of the very finest available such as the remarkable 5 year old from Cassagnoles, the wonderful vintages from Chateau de Bordeneuve, Castarede, Darbeau , Montal and our latest range from Clos des Saveurs who, like the famous Delord Armagnacs use the traditional Basquaise green bottle presentations. You’ll be spoilt for choice!
A unique collection of Pre-phylloxera and Early Vintages
Brandyclassics are closely associated with many old chais and cellars throughout the Charente region and have access to some of the very oldest cognacs known to man. Our stock of really old cognacs is in huge demand and is regularly required in the most luxurious hotels in the world. We never buy or sell these great monarchs of bygone years blind. There are many tests of both provenance and quality which we conduct before selling them.
