Created by Maurice Hennessy in 1870 for his circle of friends, X.O (“Extra Old”) was born at a turning point in history and introduced a new style of cognac which is bold, rich and complex. This elegant cognac is made up of 100 eaux-de-vie and aged for some 30 years, to give an unparalleled robustness. Its flavours of candied fruit and its lightly spicy nose create a complete harmony. The long finish expresses all the complexity of the cognac’s blending and its long aging process.
Hennessy X.O: available at a recommended retail price of R1 799.95, from all major retailers.
Created in 1979, this perfectly harmonious cognac takes its name from the Paradis cellar – a legendary place at the Hennessy Maison. “Paradis” refers to the cellar used exclusively for the ageing of Hennessy’s most exceptional eaux-de-vie. For at least five decades, the eaux-de-vie-stored in oak casks whose tannins have been released over the years- matured slowly until they reach an incomparable level of purity.

Aged between 30 and 130 years with individual care and attention, Hennessy Paradis Imperial is a Cognac of absolute elegance and refinement. A request made in 1818 by the Russian Empress resulted in the original creation of a blend by Jean Fillioux as a bespoke gift for her son Tsar Alexander I. In 2010, nearly two centuries later, it was recreated as a tribute by Yann Fillioux, 7th generation master distiller of the same family line.

The Richard Hennessy cognac is a tribute to the founder of Hennessy and the crown in their cognac collection. Made up of more than 100 of the most exceptional eaux-de-vie, Richard is aged up to 200 years. It is balanced and complex, and the rich bouquet slowly releases a succession of aromas: vanilla, spices, peppers and delicately fragrant flowers.

At the occasion of its 250th anniversary, Hennessy created a unique blend that embodies the Maison’s History. Of a bright, warm shade of amber, this cognac is of great distinction and intensity. From the 250 handcrafted barrels to the selection of 100 eaux-de-vie with slow maturation process, this cognac’s harmony lies in the legacy passed down over 7 generations of Master blenders. Since 2010, Hennessy’s Master Blender, Yann Fillioux, together with his Tasting Committee, has been selecting eaux-de-vie from amongst the ones he has carefully chosen and matured throughout his 50-year presence in the Maison and have crafted a subtle and elegant, yet powerful blend for the occasion: The Hennessy 250 Collector Blend.
Hennessy 250 Collectors Blend: available at a recommended retail price of R5 999.00from all major retailers.
