Hennessy

The world famous Cognac producer Hennessy has a history dating back to 1765 when the company was established by Irishman Richard Hennessy. Initially an eaux-de-vie trading business, Hennessy was going to become the most successful Cognac exporter in the world.

Hennessy is the # 1 brandy in the world and represents the Art of Blending. Cognac is a blend of various distillates of wine grapes Ugni Blanc (eaux-de-vie), which have matured in oak barrels.

Hennessy produces many different blends of cognac, with the ‘basic’ VS being the global market leader. Others include VSOP (Very Special Old Pale) and XO (eXtra Old), which were invented by Hennessy in the 19th century. Named after the founder of the house Richard Hennesy, the ‘ultimate cognac’ the Hennessy VS was launched by Hennessy in 1996. Hennessy VS is a perfect blend of more than hundred rare eaux-de-vie, of which some are over 200 years old.

The art of blending is not only evident in Hennessy’s trademark in the creation of the drink, but also in the brand’s way of thinking. Artistic trends are blended in the design of special bottles, the cognac is paired with cigars, food and chocolate. On top of it the Hennessy VS cognac is a very enjoyable mix in long drinks and cocktails.
