The house of Hardy owes its name to a 19th century British gentleman, Anthony Hardy. As a wine and spirits professional, Anthony traveled regularly to the Charentes region to monitor quality and secure supplies of Cognac's finest eaux de vie. He fell in love with the region and eventually settled there. He founded Hardy in 1863 and, as a great Francophile, went so far as to adopt the Gallic cockerel as his company emblem.

Over the generations, the rooster grows and develops internationally, mainly in Eastern Europe. Jacques Hardy, 4th generation opens new markets in North America, South America and English-speaking Africa. And, even though the House produces a full range - VS, VSOP, XO - he decides to concentrate mainly on the luxury segment of the market, top-of-the-range Cognacs, presented in crystal decanters. Thus, in 1960, the Anniversaire de Mariage series was born, with "Noces de Perles" (Cognac with an average age of 30 years), "Noces d'Or" (50 years), "Noces de Diamant" (60 years), "Noces d'Albâtre" (75 years), and "Noces d'Argent" (25 years - revisited in 2015).

Today, Bénédicte Hardy embodies the family's fifth generation. She, in turn, has taken up the challenge of creating decanters with a "haute couture spirit", as the brand claims. While the "Five Elements" series - five decanters named "Water", "Flame", "Air", "Earth" and "Light" - created in partnership with Daum crystalware holds a special place in her heart, her real masterstroke was convincing Lalique to participate in the "Four Seasons" range. The "Spring"... See more ...

Description Hardy Quatre Saisons "L'Eté": Carafe Lalique numérotée.

This is a blend of 6 Cognacs almost a hundred years old, exclusively from the first classified growth of the Cognac region, Grande Champagne. These cognacs were carefully set aside between 1919 and 1940 by Armand Hardy, the third generation founder of the House.

The Cellar Master of this house has composed the blend of these unique eaux-de-vie by seeking to highlight the sweet, gourmet flavors punctuated by apricot, honey and cinnamon.

The famous French art glassmaker Lalique did the rest by imagining a radiant crystal decanter by fossilizing a fairy vine. The atmosphere is more vibrant and sunny than ever.
