A. Hardy has introduced Hardy Legend 1863 Cognac to the U.S.
With a title referring to the year in which the House of Hardy was founded, this vintage cognac is created from a selection of eaux-de-vie from the Petite Champagne District with a hint of borderies that are blended using traditional methods, the company reports.
The cognac is aged up to twelve years in toasted Limousin oak barrels. The end result is a representation of the classic Hardy style, the company says, with a rich bronze color, a scent of dates and rose petals, and flavors of cappuccino.
Hardy Legend 1863 may be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in cocktails, and it makes an ideal sidecar.
Legend 1863 Cognac, 40% ABV, has a suggested retail price of $59.95.
