Like all great creations, Hardy Cognac began with an intensely passionate individual. Anthony Hardy relocated to France in 1863 to begin his Cognac creating journey. Many years, awards and accolades later, Hardy is the producer of one of the top Cognacs on the market - and we are proud to represent them within the UK. "To open a bottle of Hardy Cognac is to discover a rare work of art."
Consisting of blends aged between 30 and 60 years, the Noces D'or is a truly remarkable cognac of outstanding quality. The nose offers floral scents of lilac and notes of ripe fruits. The palate is full of cherry and a slight hint of woodiness presents on the finish - a sincerely fine cognac.
Maison Hardy owes its name to an authentic English gentleman, Anthony Hardy. Like any conscientious wine and spirit merchant, Hardy liked to get out of London as often as he could and head down to Charente to check on the progress of the finest Cognac crus. He finally succumbed to the region’s charms in 1863, relocating permanently and founding Maison Hardy. Today Bénédicte Hardy represents the fifth generation of Hardy Cognac makers. As Maison Hardy’s international ambassador, she has worked to build the company’s reputation in the USA. We are excited to work with Maison Hardy as exclusive agents in the UK.
This is my "go to" Cognac from the fabulous house of Hardy Cognac. Refined and thoughful, with a delicacy which I have not found too often without jumping up in the price range over above the XO style from the notorious names. Quite pale with less caramel than most, plenty of citrus fruit, honeyed notes, mostly the edges are well rounded, it glides, a serious bottle from a very serious producer.
