Occasion Gifts

Occasion Gifts

Special occasions call for extra special gifts, so take a look at our incredible range of occasion gifts for your very special celebrations. Here at Brandyclassics we specialise in luxury, vintage cognacs, armagnacs, calvados and eaux de vie from single estate distillers. Our unrivalled range provides a large and diverse selection of gifts for the brandy lover. Because all of our cognacs, armagnacs and calvados are vintage or have age statements, we can offer unique and memorable presents for every special occasion from Special Year Birthdays to Anniversaries to Celebration Days. It is always touching to give or receive a memento of a special occasion in your life and brandies that do not have a ‘best before’ date really fit the bill. Stored in an upright position and with the cork replaced, a bottle really can last for many years helping those memories to go on and on. Our vintage brandies display the year that the grapes were harvested, great to pair up with a year of birth or marriage date. We have every single vintage year from 1928 – 2001 and a few more besides. And those brandies with age statements (for example 30 year old or 50 year old) clearly show for how long the brandy has been aged in the oak barrel. What a fitting gift to give on a special anniversary or one of those ‘big’ birthdays. We sell the very best cognac, armagnac and calvados, each one of which makes an exciting and unusual gift idea that you simply won't find anywhere else. To view the selection of festivity gifts for your celebration quickly, go to Occasion Gifts on the bar above and select the celebration of your choice. If you would like some advice on what to choose do not hesitate to call our offices on 01225 863988 where any member of our team will be only too happy to help.

  11. Hermitage Handmade Humidor with 1877 Cognac & Baccarat Decanter
    Only one bottle remaining

    The Hermitage Humidor was made around the turn of the twenty first century by a craft furniture maker in the small market town of Bradford on Avon. It is made from Spanish cedar, the finest wood for keeping cigars in the best condition and burr walnut, a wood often used in the world’s most luxurious motor cars. The corners are finished with ebony stringing and the lid is secured by magnets and a golden coloured lock and key. A removable inner section houses two diamond-cut crystal brandy glasses and a Baccarat decanter and stopper. There is also a cigar tray which, when inverted, can be used to store the finest cigars in their best condition. This magnificent piece of furniture has a hygrometer in the lid and is hand finished with multiple wax polish layers. It measures 45 x 27.5 x 27cm.

    The firm of Baccarat has been making crystal glassware for more than 250 years and is the most highly regarded hand-blown crystal producer in France. It was established in 1765 by the Bishop of Metz who wanted to encourage industry in the small village of Baccarat, some 250 miles from Paris. Today, Baccarat Crystal can be found across the world and many of their earlier crystal creations are now regarded as priceless. This Harcourt Baccarat Crystal Decanter is extremely well suited to serving fine, old, luxury cognacs and it is filled with Martell 1877 Cognac. 

    Martell is the oldest of the great cognac houses. This 1877 vintage came to us in a bottle containing 75 cl and a badly deteriorated label. We have a sale label confirming it was distilled in 1877 and bottled in 1888. Further detailed information is available.

    The Hermitage Handmade Humidor with Baccarat Decanter, crystal glasses and Martell 1877 Cognac is DELIVERED FREE, worldwide.

    Flavour:
    Flavour: Many of the grapes for Martell cognacs come from the region to the north of Cognac, which today we call the Borderies, and give the cognac a nutty flavour.
