The world of Hardy cognac is one of timeless elegance and centuries-old tradition.

The world of Hardy cognac

Each bottle tells a story, capturing the essence of the Charente terroir and the expertise of the cellar masters. Hardy cognacs are round, smooth and subtle, without ever being too woody. Whether it's an intimate tasting or a grand celebration, immersing yourself in the world of Hardy is an invitation to share in the French art de vivre and passion for exceptional spirits.

The French Touch

The French Touch, the unique essence of French elegance, is perfectly expressed by Hardy cognac. For over a century, Hardy has embodied the perfect blend of tradition and modernity, offering cognacs of unparalleled finesse and sophistication.

Through its ancestral know-how and creativity, it expresses the very essence of French elegance. Each sip of Hardy cognac reveals a subtle balance between tradition and modernity, with delicate aromas and remarkable finesse. Hardy sublimates the heritage of French cognac, creating unique and memorable tasting experiences that capture the essence of the French Touch, synonymous with sophistication and refinement.

Aesthetics and design are not forgotten in the Hardy world. Like the great couturiers, Hardy creates rare and precious pieces. Collaborations with crystal manufacturers Daum, Baccarat and Lalique testify to this taste for the extraordinary. For over thirty years, an impressive collection of 'jewel' decanters has been created. Although some are no longer available, these decanters have become part of the history of cognac.

But the French Touch isn't just about looks, it's also about the tasting experience of Hardy cognacs. Their subtlety and delicate aromas reflect centuries of know-how passed down from generation to generation. Each sip takes the senses on an exceptional gustatory journey, revealing the very essence of the French Touch: elegance, sophistication and a mastery of the French “Art De Vivre”.

Hardy cognac is the perfect embodiment of the French Touch, combining tradition, expertise and innovation. It transports us to a world where every cognac is a paean to elegance, culture and the French “Art De Vivre”.

Our commitment to sustainable and responsible development

The Hardy Cognac House's commitment to responsible development is deeply rooted in its values and its vision of a sustainable future. As a prestigious brand that is aware of its environmental impact, Hardy strives to implement ethical practices in order to be part of an increasingly transparent approach to sustainable development.

More than 10 years ago, Hardy was one of the first houses to embark on an organic cognac adventure with the launch of its VSOP Organic. The result of a long-term effort to select small, high-quality batches for production, VSOP Organic reflects Hardy's desire to protect the biodiversity of the Cognac region. It has been awarded Ecocert* certification and specific approval for the American market in accordance with the NOP (National Organic Program) regulations, thus guaranteeing:

  • Respect for living ecosystems and animal welfare
  • Maintaining high levels of biodiversity and soil fertility
  • A ban on synthetic chemical pesticides and GMOs
  • Responsible use of natural resources

*Ecocert is an international inspection and certification body for organic food and farming.

Hardy is also working to reduce its carbon footprint by optimising its production processes and refocusing its purchasing and supplier sourcing as much as possible in France and Europe. The new Fier et Hardy bottles, which will be launched in 2023 to mark the 160th anniversary of the house, reflect this commitment to increasingly sustainable packaging:

  • Boxes made from recycled cardboard and paper produced in Rochechouart (87) and FSC certified with FSC Chain of Custody.
  • 100% recycled, FSC-certified labels made in Cognac
  • Bottles 150g lighter (700g vs. 850g for the 70cl), saving 18 tonnes of glass*, equivalent to 18 tonnes of CO2 (or 18 flights from Paris to New York or 60,000 km by car).

1 tonne of glass = 1 tonne of CO2
