Cognac Prince Hubert De Polignac:
A Giant Leap For A Great Cause


COGNAC, France, September 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Maison Prince Hubert de Polignac is proud to unveil its latest creation inspired by the world of equestrianism. The very first ‘Knight Trunk’ will go under the hammer at the 8th annual La Part des Anges auction on 19th September.

A year on from the launch of the hedonistic ‘888 Trunk’, dedicated to poker and the pleasures of the night, Prince Hubert de Polignac has once again teamed up with Paris-based luxury trunk maker T.T. Trunks. This time the illustrious cognac maker has decided to celebrate the world of equestrian sports and horsemanship, so dear to the heart of the company’s founder. Maison Prince Hubert de Polignac thus asked the master craftsmen at T.T. Trunks to create a trunk which would capture the quintessential elegance of equestrianism.

The two brands, sharing the same passion for the highest quality, will unveil the Knight Trunk on the 19th of September at la Part des Anges auction respecting the heritage of the French know how following the highest standards of both industries.

Packed into this sumptuous case are all the accessories a rider could need (brushes, mane comb, curry comb, cover etc.)

Nestled within the trunk is a precious carafe, containing an exceptional blend of very old vintage cognacs. This Grande Champagne blend reveals an incredibly rich palette of aromas, with candied citrus fruit notes accented with dashes of rich, dried fruit. This intense, entrancing bouquet is rounded off with an extremely refined hint of rancio.

Thus far only two of these trunks have been created, and any future editions will have to be made to order: creating the Knight Trunk requires 180 hours of work from experienced craftsmen.


Dimensions: 920 × 434 × 434 mm.
Weight: 40 kg.
Materials: leather-embossed canvas. Poplar wood frame.
Details in polished, nickel-plated brass.
180 hours of craftsmanship.

Inaugurated by the BNIC – the National Interprofessional Federation for Cognac –La Part des Anges brings together some of Cognac’s most prestigious names, who invite valued customers, high-profile collectors and journalists from all over the world to participate in an auction featuring some truly exceptional lots. A joint initiative launched in a spirit of generosity and solidarity, with all profits going to charity
