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

Hennessy V.S displays a beautifully bright golden color. The powerful bouquet is dominated by overtones of oak, giving way to reveal a delicate scent of hazelnuts. Smooth and floral, V.S combines the sweetness of red fruits with a hint of vanilla

Hennessy V.S. is a blend of the finest cognacs, aged to full maturity in oak barrels in the town of Cognac, where Richard Hennessy established his company in 1765. Full bodied with a pronounced aroma of oak and hazelnuts, a rich floral taste with tones of red berries and vanilla.
