BRAND STORY In the 18th century, an English merchant sent his son Thomas Hine to France to learn the art of making cognac. There Thomas fell in love with the daughter of a famous cognac négociant. Following their marriage, Thomas joined his father-in-law’s company and expanded what was to become the traditional business of HINE: making bespoke cognacs. In 1817, the company became Thomas Hine & Co. and now, more than 250 years later, the extraordinary story of the Hine family and HINE cognac continues. Known for its a sophisticated range of fine & delicate cognacs, HINE was appointed the official cognac supplier to HRH Queen Elizabeth II of England in 1962. The Royal Warrant is granted for five years and every five years HINE has been honored to have the Warrant renewed.
