Glenfarclas and Hine join forces for 1953 vintage
Glenfarclas Scotch whisky and Hine Cognac have joined forces with the Queen’s cabinet maker to create a pair of obelisks to house the 1953 vintages of each product.
Only 125 pairs of obelisks have been made at NEJ Stevenson, cabinet makers by Royal Appointment. The commemorative Coronation obelisks will retail at £14,000 per pair and will be available through UK distributor Pol Roger.
Glenfarclas 1953 is the oldest cask owned by the distillery. The contents of a single Spanish oak sherry cask were bottled unfiltered at 43.9% abv, natural cask strength.
The Hine 1953 is a Grande Champagne Cognac and the single cask of 1953 spent 60 years maturing in the same French oak barrel and has been bottled unfiltered at natural cask strength of 41.9% abv.
Hine is the only Cognac house to be granted the Royal Warrant.
