Hennessy Cognac – the world’s finest cognac made exclusively from grapes grown in a small delimited area of France. The region’s assets – the climate, the light, the soil and the sub-soil, and the vines combine perfectly for the creation of the finest cognac. Nowhere else in the world are these elements found in such ideal harmony. Hennessy owns more than 40 warehouses, capable of holding some 250,000 barrels. Only at Hennessy is every one of the 2,500 different eaux-de-vie systematically tasted every year to ensure its quality. Only at Hennessy has the same family of Cellar Masters maintained the house’s style of cognac and its consistent high quality. Their creations are renowned for being full bodied and rich in fruit flavours with subtle hints of wood.
