Early Landed Cognac

English name for a vintage Cognac or for a traditional manufacturing method, which goes back to the 18th century. At that time, younger ones became distillates (one to three years) imported from France to Britain and stored there in London or Bristol in damp cellar vaults under the control of the British customs. These special maturing conditions in cold, humid cellars lend the cognac a special character. This tradition is today mainly of Thomas Hine groomed.
