About Richard Hennessy Cognac

Maison Hennessy is one of the most iconic and distinguished cognac houses. The brand, which has become synonymous with cognac, has significantly shaped the history of this sophisticated French spirit. The dynastic Hennessy family has been dominating the cognac industry for two and a half centuries. In 1765, Richard Hennessy, an Irish officer serving in Louis XV's army, set out to create the world's finest cognac. The refined and highly popularized elixir became a thriving export business, shipping as far as Ireland, Britain, and all throughout Europe.

Today, Hennessy is part of LVMH Group, prevailing as one of the most famous innovative, revolutionary cognac companies in the world. The brand is known for cultivating profitable relationships across markets, like its well-known relationship with the Hip-Hop industry. The Hennessy estate/headquarters are based in the famous town of Cognac in Charente, where cognac production reigns supreme.

In 1865, Maurice Hennessy, the great-grandson of founder Richard Hennessy, created a star classification system to distinguish quality in cognac. Hennessy's 3-star Cognac went on to become Hennessy V.S. (which stands for "Very Special"), the most popular cognac in the world. Only the most distinctive eaux-de-vie comprise this cognac, which then matures for several years in oak casks expertly blended to uncover a warm, full-bodied flavor. On the nose, Hennessy VS combines intense and fruity character with pleasantly oaky notes. On the palate, robust flavors of grilled almonds abound, enhanced by vibrant notes of fresh grapes.

Richard Hennessy Cognac is an ultra-premium cognac that pays tribute to the house's founding father. First crafted in 1996, this luxurious expression is a blend of more than 100 eaux-de-vie. These are some of the rarest and oldest eaux-de-vie from Hennessy's reserves, aged from 40 to a whopping 200 years. The cognac comes in a striking Baccarat crystal decanter that befits such a prestigious spirit.

About Cognac

Cognac is a type of brandy produced in the Cognac region of France.
Because the French take it very seriously, there are numerous rules cognac makers have to follow not to fall “short” into the brandy category.


The white wine from the specific grapes (Ugni blanc) has to be doubly distilled in a copper pot still before being aged for at least two years in oak casks from which the wood can only come from two specific forests in France (Limousin or Tronçais).


Depending on the age, there are three types of cognac, the youngest V.S. (Very Special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and the X.O. (Extra Old)

The beautiful amber cognac leads with floral and spice aromas on the nose with nutmeg, fennel, and oak. The palate is gently spicy with leather and dried fruit taking the center stage. There's a pleasant sweetness throughout with caramel, honey, vanilla, and a hint of rancio.
