Hennessy Privilège

Privilège Bottle
1817 is the date when the legend of Hennessy Privilège began.
The emblematic “bras armé” reflects the long history of Hennessy. It has been part of the Hennessy seal for more than 2 centuries.
The Grapes are the symbol of the vineyards. They refer to the grandeur of the Hennessy Maison and the nobility of the product.
The new silhouette, a reinterpretation of the original iconic Privilège bottle from 1954, has been recently designed by the automobile designer Chris Bangle.

Hennessy Privilège easily matches every tasting occasion, whether 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 Privilège has built its reputation across nearly 2 centuries.

Today Hennessy Privilège has become established as the world’s favorite VSOP Cognac, and is recognised for its harmonious and well-structured blend.

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 vigor. The structure is softened by a suggestion of fresh grape character.

A long-lasting finish

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