Exceptional things require time, but simply to wait is not enough. Down through the ye- ars since 1765, Hennessy has been associated with excellence and mystery. Behind its closely guarded doors, the Hennessy Comité de Dégustation (Tasting Committee) – un- paralleled in the world of cognac – creates some of the most unique and elegant blends, thanks to its priceless heritage: the largest and most diverse reserve of eaux-de-vie in the world.
This delicate alchemy and unique knowledge gives birth to some of the most extraordi- nary cognacs. This Savoir-Faire, passed down across 250 years, rests on three pillars, each elevated to the level of an art form: the selection of the eaux-de-vie; their matura- tion; and their blending. It is for these reasons that, for 250 years, Hennessy has been able to preserve and perpetuate its expertise, and to establish a unique style with such a variety of expressions.
