  1. Hermitage Paradis 1890 Grande Champagne Cognac

    IWSC 2021 - Gold Award

    "A tropical note behind the oaky, polished wood and roasted coffee aromas. Black tea on the palate is balanced with spice and creamy caramel. Dry, nuanced, refined and elegant." Judges' comments

    This remarkable cognac has spent more than 80 years in its oak cask slowly developing its rich aromas and complex flavours. There are aromas of marmalade, thyme, banana and spices with a rich and lovely complexity of flavours including mandarin, toffee brittle, allspice, marmalade, gingerbread and roasted nut flavours.  Beautifully balanced, the flavours surround the tongue with a rich velvet softness which enhances the intense ‘rancio’.

    Did you know?  In 1890, England witnessed the first official County Cricket match, where Yorkshire beat Gloucestershire by 8 wickets.

    Aroma:
    Aroma: There are aromas of dark chocolate, roasted chestnuts, butterscotch, marmalade, thyme, banana, cigar box, nutmeg and dried fig.
    Flavour:
    Flavour: Cocoa, sweet spices, old Madeira wine, dried sultanas, mandarin, toffee brittle, gingerbread, roasted chestnuts and liquorice are amongst the many complex flavours that help to identify this cognac’s great age. It has a long finish of saffron, dried dates, mace, bitter orange marmalade, kumquats and pineapple syrup. Beautifully balanced, the flavours surround the tongue with a rich velvet softness which enhances the intense ‘rancio’

  2. Hermitage Paradis 1893 Grande Champagne Cognac

    On a recent visit to the Cognac region it was something of a shock to find a cellar with some vintages from the last quarter of the 19th century. One of them was the 1893, regarded by many as one of the finest vintages to come from this important period. Very long barrel ageing has created an exceptionally long and dry rancio, together with an intense colour and depth and range of flavours.

    Aroma:
    Aroma: Mushroom with saffron and ginger, cedar and sultanas.
    Flavour:
    Flavour: Saffron combines with crystallised orange and toffee brittle. Hints of fresh dough with mangosteen, lychee and a host of mixed spices.

  3. Hermitage Paradis 1885 Grande Champagne Cognac

    The much sought after ‘rancio’ in this cognac is incredibly intense and rich. Created by long barrel ageing, in two different barrels, for a total of more than 110 years, the effect is stunning. The richness of this sublime cognac is defined by notes of demerara, madeira, roasted walnuts, liquorice, burnt toffee and a complexity of many rich and defined flavours which are enhanced by its superb balance. At 46% abv its balance surpasses that of any we have tasted from the Premier cru in recent years. This is a masterpiece which will never be repeated.

    Did you know?  In 1885 the Statue of Liberty arrived at Liberty Island, New York from France where it was made, having been funded by the French people.

    Aroma:
    Aroma: Many of these old and rare cognacs from the 19th century have developed an intensely rich rancio aroma; this does not disappoint. The initial smell of molasses characterises an extremely well-aged rancio, when development of the madeira richness is enhanced even further. Spiced cherry and roasted walnut aromas complete the excitement.
    Flavour:
    Flavour: If the aroma is remarkable, the flavour is sensational. Many of the aromas are also found in the flavours. The molasses, cherry and roasted walnut are all there but also turmeric and black truffle, medlar, allspice, fig, cocoa and almond. For a cognac at 46% the balance is remarkable and surpasses that of any we have tasted from the Premier cru in recent years.

  4. Hermitage Paradis 1880 Grande Champagne Cognac

    The period from 1870 to 1900 saw cognac houses in France produce some of their finest spirits, a few of which are still available today. This was a period before the official recognition of crus, however, it was widely accepted that the area north of the River Né and south of the town of Cognac produced some of the finest cognacs. The region later became known as Grande Champagne, the premier cru of the six cognac regions in The Charente. Like so many of these old finds this exceptional cognac has survived several generations, only to come to light after nearly 100 years of ageing in oak casks, slowly developing a unique and very special style and flavour. The cognac has reduced naturally, without the need for dilution or additives. One becomes aware of a deep rancio when bringing it to the nose and on the palate, there is an immediate richness and complexity. This has all the qualities of a seriously well aged cognac. Genuine history in a bottle and a pleasure to drink.

    Aroma:
    Aroma: An intensely rich rancio aroma with cigar box, mushroom, saffron, ginger, cloves, cedar and sultanas, all of which develop into a delightful nuance of dried figs and green cardamom
    Flavour:
    Flavour: There is turmeric and black truffle, mangosteen and medlar which combine with flavours of allspice, fig, cocoa and walnut. It has a rich and unctuous rancio.

We make no pretence, Hermitage single estate cognacs are the very finest available in the world today. Years of research has identified distillers who are able to combine the specific viticulture, viniculture and complex ageing procedures required to produce exceptional cognacs of distinctive character.  Our understanding and synergy with these highly individual producers has created pure cognacs of great maturity and finesse unlike more commercial cognacs that use additives to conceal their young ages and aggressive character.

Our unique position enables us to concentrate on these very special nectars, many of which have laid in cellars for decades, rather than the more commercial and larger quantities required by the big houses such as Hennessy, Courvoisier, Martell et al. Cognac houses such as these will blend thousands of young brandies together to create the generic VS, VSOP and XO titles. Hermitage Cognacs are the result of very specific distillation qualities and long, careful ageing in oak casks, from a single estate producer.

Our commitment to locating exceptional cognacs has been recognized in the multiple awards received by Hermitage Cognacs. These prestigious cognacs can be found in some of the most famous bars and restaurants in the world, having carved an enviable reputation in the luxury cognac market for producing distinctive, rare and sought after vintages of exceptional individuality and quality.

"Superb cognac from one of our favourite independent bottlers of brandy"  Hedonism Wines, Mayfair.

"Hermitage Cognac is dedicated to ferreting out rare, single-estate cognacs from under-the-radar producers ........ if you want to witness how beautifully a cognac can age, Hermitage is the place to go."  Alice Lascelles, Financial Times
