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 1980. Queen released "Another One Bites the Dust" and Blondie was singing "Call Me". The Rubik Cube debuted internationally at a toy fair in London and Post It Notes went on sale for the first time. Further afield the Fax machine became available in Japan and in the USA, Ronald Reagan won the race to be President, CNN was launched and unforgettably, John Lennon was killed. 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 1980, married in 1980 and celebrating their 40th Milestone this year.
