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.

    Only one bottle remaining

    There is an area of Grande Champagne, South East of Cognac where some of the finest cognacs are made. The small village of Juillac le Coq grows some of the nicest vines in the region and it is from here that the Hermitage 1928 Cognac comes. The flavour is clean with a light nut straw and citrus aroma. The rancio is one of a dry straw but rich quality. This is a cognac not to be missed.

  2. Hermitage 1923 Grande Champagne Cognac

    This is a particularly fine example of a 1920s cognac which comes from the southern part of the Grande Champagne cru around Lignières. Cognacs of this quality take many decades to reach perfection and this is a fine example. Utterly delicious with flavours of passion fruit, damsons macadamia nuts and dried mandarin peel. It has a fine and intense rancio, the result of more than 60 years in an oak barrel.

  4. Cognac Hermitage 1917 Grande Champagne

    We were lucky in finding this cognac. It was in a 30 litre bonbonne and had been stored in an old cellar for many years. It is an exceedingly fine cognac from the period but regrettably the house no longer exists so this will be the last of this vintage from this house.

    Aroma:
    Aroma: A most interesting cognac in the traditional style of the period. The aroma of grapefruit peel, angelica and thyme are combined with a delightful yeasty dough theme
    Flavour:
    Flavour: This is a really fine cognac displaying many characteristic qualities of the period. The flavour is on the dry side with oaky and bitter grapefruit flavours which one would expect to find from this area
