23 August, 2007

Hine Vintage Cognacs is rolling out a gift box to target Christmas consumers.

Shaped like a book and cushioned with a festive red, it contains a bottle of Hine Rare VSOP in a decanter-shaped bottle, two tulip-shaped tasting glasses and a 5cl replica miniature of Hine Antique XO Cognac.

It has already secured listings in Harrods, House of Fraser stores and Waitrose Online, and comes with a price tag of†£40.

Hine Rare VSOP is a blend of more than 25 Grande and Petite Champagne Cognacs, the youngest of which has been aged for six years. It is distributed in the UK by Paragon Vintners.
