    The Bottle of Hine Cognac 1935 as shown is a little low on the level which indicates the seal is allowing air in. It is not in perfect condition but is worth between £275 – £325
    If you wish to sell it please contact [email protected]

    I have three bottles of HINE Grand Champagne Cognac 1937,
    Bottled in UK 1964, the content levels are consistently very slightly down, due to the moisture needed to maintain an effective cork seal.
    As a private individual, I remain open to your offer.
