A marvellous example from the well respected cognac house, Hine. Bottled and sold by Hatch Mansfield & Co, this cognac is one of the 'Early Landed' variety. Hine is the only cognac house to be awarded a Royal Warrant so the 1952 vintage is particularly special. A reserve of this vintage was set aside to commemorate the accession of Queen Elizabeth II. In 1977, some was bottled and presented to the Queen for her Silver Jubilee and the rest ten years later, in 1987. This one was bottled in 1980 and has a volume of 68.2cl.
