The eaux-de-vie of Cognac Hennessy XXO were carefully set aside and preserved in French oak barrels by the master blender several generations ago in order to make a reserve with promising potential.

The decanter has been specially modified by an artist designer to pay tribute to two families: the family of the founder Hennessy and the cellar masters of the House.

The color is Cuban mahogany amber

The nose is rich and expressive with its vegetal and spicy notes with touches of liquorice, peppermint leaves with nutmeg, some very fine hints of Crete apricot and dried d'Ente plum.

The palate is round, powerful and the palette of perfumes is endless. A rounded finish with spicy and woody nuances.

Richard Hennessy was born in Ireland in 1724. First an Irish officer, he later became a trader in Bordeaux where he lived for a long time before settling in Cognac. In 1800, Richard Hennessy's son joined forces with Samuel Turner and it was only in 1813 that James would affix his first name to give their house the name Jas Hennessy which it still bears today.

This prestigious House is at the origin of the VSOP (very superior old pale) and XO sub-appellations.

It was in the 1960s that it merged with the famous Moet et Chandon champagnes to give birth to a group now listed on the stock exchange which joined the Louis Vuitton group to form the LVMH group, one of the world's leading players, if not the first. , in the world of luxury

La Maisson Hennessy produces some 7 million cases under numerous sub-appellations and thus becoming the current leader in the Cognac sphere.
