Welcome to The B&B Speakeasy Drink of the Month for March 2012!
HINE VSOP Fine Champagne Cognac. This is the classic Hine.
The House of Hine has been operating in Jarnac, France since 1763 although it didn't take on the name of Hine until 1817. To this day Hine remains family owned. Their signature blend, VSOP Fine Champagne, is a blend of more than twenty five cognacs all of which come from the Grande and Petite Champagne regions. In other words, it's the good stuff.
Hine VSOP is widely available in the $55 to $60 price range. This is a beautifully crafted cognac for the price.
