The world’s largest and possibly most recognizable Cognac brandy producer was established by Irish entrepreneur Richard Hennessy in the late 18th century. Hennessy served in the French army for 12 years to gain citizenship, and it is for this reason that the “bras armé” is the official symbol of the brand. Jean Fillioux was hired as the first master blender in 1786. The brandy is produced within the four main regions of Cognac, France: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, and Fins Bois, and is a blend of Cognacs produced and barrelled by independent growers and distillers. The brand boasts the largest Cognac aging facility, with the capacity to age and store a quarter million casks. Moët Champagne acquired the brand in 1971 to become the Moët Hennessy Group. Hennessy is considered a luxury brand, with a recent popularity among celebrities and followers of the hip-hop music scene. New marketing efforts have expanded the brand offerings to include Pure White (an unaged release), Hennessy Black (a young release produced as a cocktail mixer), and Fine de Cognac (a VSOP blend).  Read less

This is a blend of over 200 cognacs that have been aged slowly in oak barrels. A blast of spices and peppers upfront, which is mellowed by flower aromas and a sweet, smooth finish.

<p>Hennessy Paradis is a blend of over one hundred very old "eaux-de-vie" from Cognac's finest growing regions. Hennessy Paradis was created in 1979 by Maurice Fillioux. He chose to blend "eaux-e-vie" which had been selected by his grandfather. Today, Yann Fillioux, the 7th generation from his family to be Master Blender at Hennessy, stores aside "eaux-de-vie" which might be used by his successors.&nbsp;</p>
