This winter, the House of Hine presents their latest limited edition – H by Hine artist gift box., with this year’s artwork created by French artist and winner of the 2020 Hine Royal College of Art Sasha Ferré.
About Sasha Ferré
Sasha Ferré is a visual artist who lives and works in Paris and London. Sasha Ferré’s practice investigates the deeply entangled nature of the living world.

Hine Royal College of Art Painting Prize
First launched in 2011, the Hine Royal College of Art Painting Prize is awarded yearly to a fine arts graduate whose work resonates with the brand’s innovative spirit. Once selected, the graduate’s work joins the brand’s art collection exhibited in the Hine House in Jarnac.
Beginning in 2016 each winner also lends their artistic vision to a very special collaboration and is given free rein to create an original piece of art which will house a bottle of H by Hine.
This year limited edition is named after Sarah’s poetic, original artwork named “Le bruissement de Tellus”. This piece of art which represents planet earth, metamorphosis and fluidity celebrates H by Hine’s liveliness and unconventional character.
Founded in 1763, Hine is armed with over 250 years of attention to detail from the early work in the vineyards to the art of blending the finest eaux-de-vie. Hine owns 110 hectares of vineyards in the region’s first growth, the Grande Champagne. A team of dedicated staff ensures the uncompromising longevity of one of the world’s most praised Cognac houses.
H by Hine is a ground-breaking cognac which was created for cocktails. It is ideal in classics such as French 75, Sazerac or simply in a highball glass serve topped with ginger Ale. The liquid was expertly selected by Cellar Master Eric Forget in collaboration with bartenders and has since appeared in many bars around the world.
This new, eye-catching gift box makes the perfect gift for cognac lovers this Christmas and is available at The Whisky Exchange, Master of Malt and various retailers priced £38.
