Frapin Cuvée 1888 Crystal Decanter
For over 20 generations the Frapin family can trace their incredible history of Cognac production way back to 1270 in the South West of France. From their humble beginnings they would go on to perfect Cognac production before permanently settling in the Grand Champagne region and establishing their headquarters in the Fontpinot Castle at Segonzac. Today the Frapin estate covers 300 hectares entirely in Grande Champagne and the family are officially classified as Premier Grand Cru du Cognac.
The beautiful release celebrates Piere Frapin winning a Gold Medal for his cognac at the 1888 World’s Fair in Paris.
The liquid used in this stunning blend is a combination of different vintages, some of which pre-date 1888. The decanter is made from crystal and is decorated with 24-carat gold. It is presented in a wooden display case with a mirrored back-plate.
Due to the size and weight of this item, it will include a three-bottle shipping fee.
