Hennessy Privé

An elegant tribute

Structured and elegant, drawing inspiration from Art Deco, Hennessy Privé pays tribute to its creator James Hennessy who in 1920 entrusted the secrets of the blend to cellar Master Alfred Fillioux. A man of some power and taste, James Hennessy enjoyed significant influence within French society and politics in the early 20th century. He rubbed shoulders with political leaders, intellectuals and artists, including the likes of Winston Churchill, Lawrence of Arabia, Pablo Picasso and Claude Debussy.

Hennessy Privé.
A cognac inspired by Art Deco.


So he put together a cognac “très privé” in honour of his friends, and taking inspiration from the Art Deco movement of the time.
Almost a century later, Hennessy went back to this tradition. In 2009 Alfred Fillioux’s descendant, Yann Fillioux, reconstituted Hennessy Privé, this blend made for connoisseurs, who appreciate it best undiluted, and in doing so pay elegant tribute once more to James Hennessy.


Hennessy Privé is a blend of about hundred pure and structured eaux-de-vie, selected for their capacity to achieve a perfect balance between roundness and aromatic refinement. They are between twelve to thirty years-old and are aged in young barrels, but in a way that ensures the wood never dominates. This selection of lean yet powerful eaux-de-vie is characterised by a touch of fresh mint, forming an altogether poised and harmonious cognac.


Colour: Hennessy Privé glistens with brilliant hues of light amber.
Nose: On the nose there are characteristic suggestions of damp undergrowth, coupled with elegant touches of ripened fruits.
Palate: In the mouth, there are suggestions of fresh mint as well as preserved fruits which together create a velvety structure, pleasingly lifted by flavours reminiscent of praline.
Hennessy Privé can be enjoyed neat, but is also a good match for sweet snacks in between meals, creamy treats with coffee or chocolate flavours.
