Haute couture philosophy

The Hardy cockerel is the proud emblem of a range of Cognacs marked by a distinctly feminine touch. Cellar Master Mickaël Bouilly crafts his blends from our priceless collection of sensual, refined eaux-de-vies, imbued with the power and mystery of rare perfumes.

To open a bottle or carafe of Hardy Cognac is to discover a rare work of art. Collaborations with Cristallerie Daum and Maison Lalique reflect our taste for the exceptional. Over the last three decades these partnerships have produced an impressive array of prestigious, limited edition carafes. While many of them are no longer available for sale, these bespoke creations have become a part of Cognac’s rich history.

Carafe Perfection

The Perfection Carafe (1981)

This carafe is the fruit of a collaboration between Jacques Hardy and Daum, a partnership which sparked a minor revolution. Before the Perfection, nobody had ever thought to devote such attention to the bottle itself. Each carafe is accompanied by a lithograph from contemporary artist Jacques Carzou.
