Hardy Le Printemps

Top 10 Prestige Cognacs

Hardy Le Printemps comes in a hand-crafted decanter from Lalique

Origin: Grande Champagne, France; $12,262 (750 ml)

Released in honor of Hardy's 150th anniversary, Le Printemps is the first in a series of four collaborations with famed crystal manufacturer Lalique. Limited to 400 bottles, the spirit is a blend of small-batch Grande Champagne Cognacs dating back to the end of the Second World War, and is round in the mouth with light aromas in keeping with the Hardy style. The carafe is inspired by the delicate perfume bottles designed by Rene Lalique in the early 20th century, and comes in a sophisticated white leather case.
