Hine - one of the two companies producing brandy Early Landed. Hein Earley Lendid - special vintage brandy, which is made in an unusual way: a young cognac (with a minimum 2 years of exposure) is sent for further aging in the UK, where more favorable climatic conditions: high humidity and relatively stable temperature alcohols allow to avoid a large evaporation. The result is a more refined and exquisite cognac with a light floral, fruity aroma and subtle wood tones, unlike traditional vintage cognacs, has a strong character with rich oak tones. Therefore Hine Cognac Vintage Early Lendid - a special drink, which stands apart from other vintage Grande Champagne cognacs.
In 1791, the young Thomas Hine left Dorset (England) in search of happiness in France. He chose the Cognac region, perhaps because his family, who lived on the coast, engaged in selling cognac. The young man was not lucky: during the French Revolution, Thomas was arrested for espionage and imprisoned in the castle in Jarnac. But he soon freed and married Françoise Elisabeth, whose father had his own company for the production of brandy in Jarnac. It soon turned into a business-in-law of his own career and passion. Thomas quickly became known and respected expert. Over the years, he raised the art of making cognac to new heights, while continuing to develop the business, which in 1822 was named Thomas Hine & Co.
