Presentation of the domain :

Back in 1550, the Hine family lived in Beaminster, Dorset, on the south coast of England. The family's great cognac journey was to begin in the 18th century: Thomas Hine, the father, a linen merchant — and quite a cognac connoisseur — decided to send his son Thomas (one of eleven children) to France to learn French and the art of making cognac.

Thomas, then aged sixteen, left his family home and headed for France, setting foot in Nantes in 1791, he then travelled to Bordeaux, where he stayed for a while, before continuing to Jarnac, a small town just east of Cognac. Since 1763, Jarnac had been the base for the négociant's premises where Thomas was to create his father's favourite cognac. In the early days, Thomas began his employment as a personal assistant, a respected and worthy position. 

Bernard Thomas Hine is the current Hine family member. In keeping with the Hine values, he has pursued his passion for single vintage cognacs — which are officially recognised — thus upholding and furthering the great family tradition.

The House of HINE stands on the banks of the River Charente, deep in Cognac country. In the ancient cellars behind, little has changed in 250 years. Always locked, they protect the finest vintages. This is one of the oldest houses in Jarnac, and has always been the company's headquarters.

Presentation of the vintage :

A vintage with lightness and incomparable bouquet

Bright, soft and well balanced, this Grande Champagne reveals finesse and aromas of leather and spice. Its woody and fresh nuts, so characteristic of old cognacs, give a beautiful harmony. In a long finish 1960 presents a surprising aromatic persistence that ends with a surprising taste of candied orange peel.
