Fireside Snifters


The nights are drawing in and temperatures are dropping – winter is definitely upon us and so too is the Bonfire Season.

Whether you’re out and about watching fireworks or keeping the home fires burning, nothing is more heart-warming than watching the flames flicker with a glass of vintage cognac, armagnac or calvados. Aged to perfection, their smooth, mellow flavours are a treat to behold and each one is as individual as you are.

We have three vintages on offer this month – Hermitage 2005 Cognac, Dupont 1989 Calvados & Delord 1963 Armagnac - each one the perfect fireside accompaniment.

Hermitage Cognac Café 20Hermitage Cafe 20 year old

The First Ever Modern Britain Café Culture Cognac 

Working closely with our customers, we have established that there is a growing café bar culture for cognacs. At Hermitage we are the first cognac house to recognise this need and we have perfected the ideal cognac called Hermitage Cognac Café 20. This rich mocha and roasted walnut flavoured cognac is more than 20 years old and comes from the top cognac cru, Grande Champagne.

During the second half of the 17th century the London “café society” people were experimenting with new drinks. Non-alcoholic drinks like coffee and tea were new but some liked more robust drinks like port, sherry and a spirit from a small town in Western France called Cognac. Today, Hermitage produce a whole range of cognacs with age statements that are aged naturally, with individual flavours, styles, strengths and ages.  Cognacs, the likes of which you will never have tasted before.

Four More Gold MedalsAward winning Single Estate Cognac


Another great year at The Spirits Business Awards for Hermitage Cognacs as all four of our entrants were awarded GOLD medals.

Hermitage Provenance Grande Champagne 6 Year Old, 20 Year Old and 30 Year Old produced specifically for the export market all proved their worth.

In our ever growing premier collection, one of our latest vintage releases, Hermitage Chez Richon 2005 Grande Champagne was the fourth highly successful cognac.

Following on from our Cognac Grand Master Award 2014, this news could hardly have been better.
