Hine and Glenfarclas team up for 1953 vintage

23 May, 2013

Glenfarclas whisky and Hine cognac have launched joint 1953 vintages.

The brands, which are both distributed by Pol Roger in the UK, have been packaged in wooden obelisks and the retail price for the pair is £14,000.

There are 125 pairs, which will be distributed initially through Pol Roger, and one will be on display at Vinexpo.

The launch took place at Westminster Abbey alongside a celebration of 60 years of the Oxford and Cambridge blind wine-tasting competition.

Hine cellar master Eric Forget described the 1953 vintage as a “one of the best of the last century”.
