The Northampton Gent’s Christmas Wishlist
Hors D’Age Gauthier Cognac
It is brown with a mahogany hue, from an oak cask and not whisky. That’s right, ensuring it is not just whisky that takes the limelight in our wishlist, the Wine Connection, Northampton’s independent wine experts, have brought Hors D’Age Gautheir Cognac to the table; offering a great range from just £44.95 to £300. The Gauthier Family have been perfecting the art of producing cognac for over 250 years, creating cognacs that defy conventional classification and possess a freshness and aromatic quality. This exceptional, award winning XO, with its walnut, hazelnut and butter tasting notes, has a delicacy which just goes on and on and would put a smile on any gentleman’s face.
