Details

Hermitage Cognac Marie Louise is a 60-year-old Grande Champagne from one of the region's top artisan producers. It is offered in a limited first run of 50 decanters produced by Cumbria Crystal, the last producer of completely hand-blown and hand-cut, full-lead luxury English crystal in the UK. The complex aromas, intensity and depth of flavours created by its careful distillation and ageing have created a masterpiece of smoothness and an intensely rich rancio found only in the rarest of cognacs. This truly great cognac is named after Marie Louise, the second wife of Napoleon Bonaparte. She bore his son who was given the title 'Roi de Rome' and who later became Napoleon II.

"Likely to be one of the finest cognacs you have tasted."  The Saturday Telegraph Luxury supplement, December 2017
