Hermitage Cognac

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

  1. Hermitage Provenance 25 Grande Champagne Cognac

    Cognac Masters 2014 - Masters Award

    "Has more complexity" Judges' comments

    Cognacs from the Grande Champagne age very slowly. The wonderfully complex flavours of this cognac are a result of having been kept in oak barrels in damp cellars for over 25 years. 

    Aroma:
    Aroma: The aroma of fine cognac is a substantial part of its enjoyment. This cognac has wonderful rich, fruit syrup aromas such as pineapple but there are also those of roasted walnuts and spices.
    Flavour:
    Flavour: Like many fine cognacs this has a wonderful complexity of flavours. Roasted nuts, rich fruits and citrus qualities are all combined with a wonderful, intense fullness and balance.

  12. Hermitage 45 Year Old Grande Champagne Cognac

    Cognac Masters 2018 - Gold Award

    This is a cognac of great distinction and it requires time. It must not be hurried as the many aromas and flavours need to be discovered slowly. The initial aromas are of warm fruit cake and sultanas and they are matched on the palate. Hints of crab apple compliment these flavours and bring together the intense rancio with other flavours of orange syrup and porcini. The depth of rancio is worthy of an even older Grande Champagne cognac.

    "At a tasting earlier this year I was particularly impressed by the Hermitage 45 yo ... it combines mature richness with those tropical/floral notes that often emerge, unexpectedly, in dark spirits several decades old."  Alice Lascelles, Financial Times

    Aroma:
    Aroma: Warm fruit cake, sultanas and ripe Victoria plums
    Flavour:
    Flavour: Fruit cake with a little bit of mangosteen tang, a hint of crab apple combines with orange syrup and a background of porcini. Much richness and intense rancio qualities.
