A blend of Grande & Petite champagne cognac, VSOP is medium bodied with light floral aromas. A delicious lemon-pineapple mellowness with an extremely smooth finish. In a blind tasting conducted by the Beverage Tasting Institute, Hardy V.S.O.P. was rated higher than the industry leader. Aged a minimum of 8 years in limousin oak.
Hardy VSOP charms the eye with its bronze colour and deep, attractive tints, and the nose with its fresh pear scents, leading into warmer walnut notes and spicy cinnamon hints. The flavours on the palate are quite simply perfectly balanced.
It was in 1863 that Anthony Hardy, a London gentleman, settled in Cognac and established himself in the business of high-quality wines and spirits. Five generations later, Hardy Cognac is known for its character and for the skills of its cellar masters, custodians of a heritage handed down forever. Ambassadors and pilgrims, the Hardy family traveled the planet to make known their cognac: the Hardy style in all its forms.
Today, the House of Hardy is reaching out to the new generation of consumers, whilst maintaining and protecting its long-cherished history. Not so long ago, cognac was still found in barrels transported by "gabarre" to the four corners of the world.
Exported to the five continents, Hardy Cognac has preserved its authenticity for the pleasure of real cognac lovers.
