According to Talking Retail, the world’s oldest known Courvoisier vintage, Courvoisier & Curlier 1789 is now available in the Harrods Wine Shop, from 5 – 8th December. The historic cognac, a snip at £95,000, dates back to the French Revolution, and was bottled over 200 years ago by the Curlier brothers, nephews of Felix Courvoisier.

For those whose buyer has been less accommodating in 2012, four lesser vintages are available priced between £9,500 and £38,500 a bottle.

Livestream today 
If you cannot get to Harrods today, a livestream tasting is available at 12 noon GMT London time / 13:00 CET Paris time, where not only will you get the chance to glimpse the Courvoisier & Curlier 1789 Cognac, but you can also see Master Blender, Patrice Pinet, host a tasting of Courvoisier’s premium Cognac Succession J.S and a chance to send in your inevitable questions to him direct…..
Who knows, you may even see your rival NAM in the background, executing the ultimate in buyer appreciation…

Seriously, what should be your buyer-gifting policy in these austere times? -  too little says too much, too much says too little….

Anyway, why not have a really vintage weekend, from the Namnews Team!
