A marvellous example from this well respected cognac house. 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. This bottle of vintage cognac is superior to those known as 'Early Landed' (where the cognac was aged in England), as it was aged in Jarnac where the conditions for ageing are far preferable to those in England. The bottle comes in a burgundy, silk-lined presentation box which is very slightly damaged in one corner.
