A reader just sent us pictures of his beautiful Prince Hubert de Polignac Cognac bottle. And to be honest, we haven’t seen anything like it before in our ‘Your Bottle?’ section.
(If you also have bottle pictures you would like to submit, send us photos and information: Use this form – but please be aware: if you don’t follow the steps precisely, we will not publish your bottle.)
The front of the bottle has the brand name in raised glass lettering across the base.
A latin motto appears in three words on a flag across the bottle face: “Sacer Custos Pacis”. A pair of Griffons face away from each other
above this lettering.
The word “COGNAC” appears in all capitals between the name on the brand name across the base and the latin motto. The top of the bottle may have been opened, but seems to be a type of foil retaing a cork.
The rear of the bottle shows a shield with three horizontal rows of bars. The base has a rectangular paper sticker, stating brand and France as origin. Also stating ‘shipped by sole agents White Favell Vintners Ltd. London EC4’
If you are interested in this bottle, please comment – if you should have an opinion or any additional information about the cognac, please share. Thank you.
