• Down through the years since 1765, Hennessy has been associated with excellence.
    The emblematic “bras armé” reflects the long history of Hennessy.
    In 1865, Hennessy’s first Three Star Cognac was born, better known today as Very Special.

Hennessy Very Special

Hennessy Very Special is the modern-day equivalent of the original Hennessy Three Star.

Quintessentially Hennessy

Hennessy Very Special is a reference in the art of blending with its unique style. The union of warm-hearted and full-bodied flavors, Hennessy Very Special endures through the ages and pleases connoisseurs searching for a very special moment.

The Power of Blending

On the nose, Hennessy Very Special brings together an intense and fruity character with oaky notes.
On the palate, powerful flavours suggest grilled almonds, supported by notes reminiscent of fresh grapes.

Fundamentally Hennessy

Demanding in its creation, yet immediate in its tasting, Hennessy Very Special maintains its unique style across time.
As a reflection of Hennessy’s know how, Very Special’s personality is the result of carefully selecting only the most expressive and distinctive eaux-de-vie. After several years of maturation in French oak casks, the eaux-de-vie are then blended with the mastery and consistency unique to the Maison Hennessy.

A Unique Moment

Share Hennessy Very Special to create a unique moment: savour it neat, on ice or with a mixer and reveal the liveliness of its character.
