This private, small group tour offers a unique opportunity to slip behind the scenes and deepen your knowledge about Hennessy's legacy and how its remarkable cognacs are made. Visit the Ageing Cellar, an authentic working cellar lined with oak casks hand-inscribed in chalk script. In this magical place redolent with the aroma of the eaux de vie, gain a better understanding about the Cognac ageing process and discover the natural phenomenon known as the "angels' share."

Visitors will have the privilege of passing through the wrought iron gates of the Founder's Cellar. One of the estate's oldest and most emblematic buildings, this historic repository usually remains off-limits to the public and is home to Hennessy's rarest treasures, the most precious cognacs in one of the world’s largest library of eaux-de-vie. This visit culminates in a VIP lounge for a guided tasting of specially selected cognacs, including the emblematic Hennessy X.O and Hennessy Paradis cognacs. An exceptional and epicurean experience.

Please note that for health reasons, pets are not allowed on the grounds.
