Hennessy X.O

X.O Bottle
Although the silhouette of Hennessy X.O remains immortal, year after year, Hennessy takes care to inspire it with a spirit of timeless modernity that defines its contours.
Its generous forms are slightly extended to emphasize the statutory strength of this emblematic cognac.
Encrusted with vine bunches that burst from the glass and requires the most avant-garde expression of the glassmaker's skills.

A cognac both elegant and complex, which combines a strong identity with a unique style.

The original X.O

Created by Maurice Hennessy in 1870 for his circle of friends, X.O was born at a turning point in history and introduced a new style of cognac: bold, rich and complex.

Long aging for greater intensity

The 100 eaux-de-vie assembled to create X.O were aged for a long time – some for 30 years – to give an unparalleled robustness. Maurice Hennessy gave the name X.O to this unique “extra old” cognac.

Deeply complex and rich

Its intense and deep amber color is a sign of its strength. Its flavors of candied fruit and its subtle and lightly spicy nose create a complete harmony: a mark of its roundness. To taste, a smooth, full sensation gives a simultaneously powerful and soft tonality with a hint of cocoa and a warm fruity presence. The long finish expresses all the complexity of the cognac’s blending and its long aging process.

When appreciation grows

At once deep and powerful, its character seduces connoisseurs, who appreciate its undeniable modernity and constant revelation of layers of flavors, whether tasted neat, on ice or with a splash of still or sparkling water.
