How many people can claim to have tasted a cognac distilled at the turn of the last century?  Well this is your chance!  Our extra special 1900 Cognac Gift Set comprises a 20Cl bottle of 1900 cognac from the top cru and one of our exclusive Hermitage Cognacs tulip-shaped tasting glasses.  The Hermitage 1900 Grande Champagne was found in an old cellar, the owners of which ceased making cognac many years ago, so it really was a rare and exclusive find.
