The Hine company is named for its proprietor Thomas Hine (sometimes recorded as Thomas Hone), an Englishman from Dorset, England. Following his arrest during the French Revolution, Thomas Hine married a young maiden, Francoise Elisabeth, whose father owned a cognac house in Jarnac. Hine took the company to new heights, and eventually renamed it Thomas Hine & Co. in 1817.
The Hine House has stood on the banks of the Charente River in Jarnac, France for over 250 years. It is one of the oldest houses in Jarnac and serves as the company’s headquarters. In 1962, the house was granted a royal warrant from Queen Elizabeth II, as suppliers of cognac. Today it is still the only cognac house to hold this honour.
HINE has a reputation as specialist in vintage cognacs. Over the centuries, HINE has built up significant stocks of Grande Champagne cognacs from the finest years. These reserves, and the traditional skills passed on from generation to generation, enable the HINE Cellar Master to create rich, complex blends.
