At Hennessy, cognac is not improvised. It is raised with kindness and attention, firmness and affection.
The Grapevine yields Ugni Blanc, the light fruity grape specially suited to Hennessy Maison's double distillation in great copper stills. To ensure the aromas will be both excellent and varied, only eaux-de-vie from the four great crus of the region (Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois), are selected for the privilege of becoming great Hennessy cognacs. The Founder’s Cellar is in itself a symbol of this heritage, the time-defying heart of Hennessy Maison. Every single one of these eaux-de-vie has been aged for at least fifty years, and many are over a hundred years old.
It is little surprise that Hennessy Very Special is the world’s most popular cognac. Woody and nutty, with a little sweetness. Develops rounded floral notes, with elements of berries, vanilla spice and plenty of oak later on
