Hennessy V.S.O.P. Privilège Cognac is a blend of more than 60 individual eaux-de-vie, or aged cognacs. These cognacs are carefully aged up to 15 years and blended in oak casks to create a velvety, complex blend of delicate spice and honeyed fruit flavors. V.S.O.P. stands for “very superior old pale.” Enjoy neat, on the rocks or in refined cocktails.

The dynastic Hennessy family has been dominating the Cognac industry for two and a half centuries. In 1765, Richard Hennessy, an Irish officer serving in Louis XV’s army, set out to create the world’s finest cognac. The refined and highly popularized elixir became a thriving export business, shipping as far as Ireland, Britain, and all throughout Europe.
