Prince Hubert de Polignac Bottle Catalogue (last updated May 27, 2023)
356 bottles, but still incomplete (only half bottles and up)
Prince Hubert de Polignac is one of the two most important brand names of Unicoop. The other one is H. Mounier. It was the H. Mounier company (established in 1858) who in 1947 obtained the right to use the name Prince Hubert de Polignac from Hubert de Polignac, a descendant of an illustrious French aristocratic family. They bought the name and coat of arms of the family. Mounier joined forces with Unicoop in 1960 (not 1969 as some sources claim).
In 1959 the brand became official supplier to the Royal Court of Denmark. Proudly they showed it by putting a little label around neck with the statement ‘Fournisseur de la Cour de Sa Majesté le Roi de Danmark’.
In 1960 on the H. Mounier and Unicoop joined forces, so Prince Hubert de Polignac is now one of the two principal brands of Unicoop.
Very characteristic for the old Prince H. de Polignac bottles is their typical shape like this one here, which have been in use for quite some time.
Grande champagne and Fine champagne cognacs were mostly used. Only the lower grade cognacs were blended with other crus.
May i learn more information about (Polignac blason)?
I just can find this decanters maybe from 1970s ,50CL
How about the grade of liquid inside ?
Is just VSOP ?
I like this bottle very much ~ hope can learn more story about it ~
Thank very much ~
Blason is three star quality. But in the years 1945 till 1970 (also before the War) the quality of a three star cognac could be very good. They were often aged for a much longer period than the three star or VS of today.
I have no other information about this bottle, sorry.
Why would you want to write in German? I have a Dutch section and an English section. 🙂
About your bottle, it looks like a VSOP, but I can’t really see. And what content does it have? 20cl?
I’ll send you an e-mail, maybe you could send me a larger format photo of the bottle standing up?
I am sorry, but I can not write in German.
I found this bottle after my father passed away.
I wonder what this would be worth.
But I can’t find the exact same bottle anywhere when I tried to google information.
