Augier Freres

Postby Peinar » Wed Sep 19, 2012 6:38 pm

Hi, i have bottle of augier freres roi soleil that is dated manually 1930, and have no idea how old it really is, so my question to this forum is where i should turn to get some kind of guidance. Should i drink it, sell it, store it further etc.

After doing a quick search on the internet, it looks like at least some bottles of Augier Freres (the vintage bottles, at least) have an age on it (year of distillation). It is difficult to say without any other information how old it could be, whether it's authentic, etc. All the same, a vintage 1878 bottled in the 1920s is going for around £1,750.00 on The Whisky Exchange. That may be more than what you could get at auction or selling it, but, if you could vouch for the authenticity, you could probably sell it for a decent sum.

On the other hand, if you like Cognac and spirits and aren't hurting for cash, I'd recommend keeping it or drinking it. It's something from a by-gone age that you may never have an opportunity to otherwise taste again.

I hate to be the guy reviving the old thread, but I too have a bottle of Augier Freres Roi Soleil that I can't quite seem to put a date to.
Did your original bottle look like this, or was it the colour label? Any help with a rough age indicator would be amazing!

Thanks so much!
