• The Grapes are the symbol of the vineyards. They refer to the grandeur of the Hennessy Maison and the nobility of the product.
    1817 is the date when the legend of Hennessy V.S.O.P began. A blending that is described in the records with the words “Very Superior Old Pale”.
    The emblematic “bras armé” reflects the long history of Hennessy. It has been part of the Hennessy seal for more than 2 centuries.
    The new silhouette, a reinterpretation of the original iconic V.S.O.P bottle from 1954, has been recently designed by the automobile designer Chris Bangle.

Hennessy V.S.O.P

A Crescendo of Aromas

On the nose, the first fragrances perceived are soft spices such as vanilla, clove and cinnamon. Then delicate toasted notes follow, arising from the maturation in oak barrels.

A Natural Balance of Strength and Smoothness

On the palate, the natural balance of strength and smoothness creates a harmonious blend in which maturity combines with vigour. The structure is softened by a suggestion of fresh grape character.

A Long-Lasting Finish

The highlight of tasting Hennessy V.S.O.P is the long-lasting finish, revealing the natural balance of the blend – testament to a superior cognac.

Hennessy V.S.O.P easily matches every tasting occasion, whether enjoyed on the rocks as a long drink or in a more creative drink.


Inspired by a cognac created in 1817 in response to a request from the future king of England, George IV, Hennessy V.S.O.P has built its reputation across nearly 2 centuries.

Today Hennessy V.S.O.P has become established as the world’s favourite V.S.O.P cognac, and is recognised for its harmonious and well-structured blend.
