Royal Tokaji was established in 1990 when a group of 60 vineyard owners and investors from overseas led by Hugh Johnson, the noted British author and wine historian. Their aim was to revive and bring back to international acclaim the wines of one of history’s most renowned wine regions. Extensive, cool, underground thirteenth century cellars provide the perfect environment for ageing the wines. The Oddity is a fresh, aromatic, dry white wine blended from the Furmint, Hárslevelű and Yellow Muscat grape varieties, half barrel fermented and half tank fermented.
For over 250 years Thomas Hine & Co. have been producing exceptional cognacs. Created in 1920 by Georges Hine, Antique was named after the legendary casks of mature vintage cognacs he called "antiques", stored in the cellars beneath Hine's historic headquarters in Jarnac, France. It is a blend of over 40 cognacs exclusively from grapes grown in Grande Champagne, the finest cru of the Cognac region. Hine are honoured to be the only cognac house to hold the Royal Warrant of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II.
