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 the only one in existence and is DELIVERED FREE, worldwide.
|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.|
