40th Birthday & Anniversary Gifts
Whether it is a Ruby Anniversary after 40 years of wedded bliss or a 40th birthday, this is the perfect time to celebrate with a bottle of the very best brandy. A special milestone for so many people, who are ready to live life to the full, the 40th birthday or anniversary gift can also look to the future. They say that life begins at 40 and our brandy gifts can last for years so whatever you choose, be it a cognac gift, a calvados gift or an armagnac gift, the birthday memory will go on and on. Our luxury, vintage cognacs and armagnacs come from single estate distillers, where they were meticulously aged, so we know exactly when they were harvested and distilled. This precise history provides the perfect backdrop for a unique, special 40th birthday present. How exciting for that special person to receive exceptionally good cognac, calvados or armagnac made in their own year of birth, the year of their wedding or even company start-up? So many great memories were created 40 years ago in 1981. Significant world events included the marriage of Lady Diana Spencer to Charles, Prince of Wales at St Paul's Catherdral in London. NASA launched the very first Space Shuttle mission successfully and Ronald Reagan became the 40th US President. A number of 'firsts' were also recorded: the French TGV high speed train service began between Paris and Lyon, the inaugural London Marathon was held and the Indiana Jones film, Raiders of the Lost Ark was released. It has been an eventful 40 years across the world but the birthday or anniversary milestone is certainly worth a celebration. All the brandies we have listed below were distilled 40 years ago making them very fitting gifts for those born in 1981, married in 1981 and celebrating their 40th Milestone this year.
