50th Anniversary Gifts

To reach a half century anniversary is a very special occasion indeed so, for those starting out in 1970, we have some equally special gift ideas. We sell the very best brandy from France – vintage cognac, vintage armagnac and vintage calvados – and each one makes the perfect gift for the man or woman ‘who has everything’. Our 50th anniversary gift ideas have either been aged in an oak barrel for 50 years before they were bottled, or they were distilled 50 years ago in 1970 - which was of course a notable year in history. Concord made its first supersonic flight travelling at 700 mph and Boeing 747, the world's first jumbo jet, completed its inaugural, commercial flight from New York to London with the ability to carry 550 people on board. In the music world the biggest ever rock festival took place on the Isle of Wight headlined by Jimi Hendrix and The Who; over 600,000 spectators attended. It was also the year that The Beatles released 'Let It Be' and Simon and Garfunkel released their final album together, 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'. It was an eventful year in more ways than one! For many, the 50 year anniversary really is the big one and what better time to spoil those special people in your life than with a unique and apposite present? We have many brandy lovers who shop on our website so when you are looking for the perfect 50th anniversary gift this really is the place to be. Whether you buy cognac, buy armagnac or buy calvados, it can be delivered to almost any address worldwide with your personal message in a gift card. So, go on, help those really important friends, relatives, work colleagues, team mates, employees, or employers celebrate their golden jubilee in style with exceptional, good brandy.
