The Hennessy name started with Richard Hennessy, an Irish Officer in the army of King Louis XV. It is unlikely that Richard would ever have imagined that their cognac would one day travel the world, ignoring borders and challenging traditions.
One of the most popular cognacs in the world Hennessy Very Special (VS) is matured in new oak barrels for a bold and fragrant drink, with a beguiling character that is uniquely Hennessy.
