Hine Cognac saw it’s origination in the 1760’s, when Thomas Hine set out from his native Dorset to learn the secrets of how cognac, his father’s favourite tipple, was produced. It was however, during the French Revolution and he found himself, an englishman on French soil, imprisoned at the Château de Jarnac, where he later married Françoise-Elisabeth, the daughter of his hosts, and gave his name to the house.

Since this dramatic arrival, six generations of the Hine family have succeeded one another at the head of Thomas Hine & Co. The House of Hine cherishes a solid belief: that a great cognac is above all a great white wine.

The house’s philosophy that, “The identity of this wine is imprinted beneath our feet, at the heart of a living land that has evolved over thousands of years. Vines form the link between the earth and the heavens, replete with vagaries and caprices. They infuse the grapes with a character extracted from this unique, unparalleled place, imbued with a temporality that commands the here and now. Cognac embodies a perpetual quest for balance between consistency and virtuosity.” is why we love this Cognac and know you will too!
