THE MAISON HENNESSY
For over 250 years, Hennessy has been crafting one-of-a-kind cognacs in the heart of the Charente region in France. The Maison is truly committed to the terroir, to sustainable practices and to offering excellence in every bottle, in more than 160 countries.
Could Richard Hennessy and his eldest son James possibly have imagined at the end of the eighteenth century that, one day, their cognac would have travelled the world over, ignoring borders and challenging traditions?
FROM GRAPE TO BOTTLE
The process of making cognac is long and sophisticated. Locally grown Ugni White grapes journey through six major steps from the moment they are gingerly picked from their vines to that first sip as an exceptional cognac in your glass.Discover
QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE
Our quest for excellence has been constant since 1765. Continuity is essential. The Maison benefits from a long, unbroken line of Master Blenders. Daily tastings have been conducted with discipline and discernment for just as long.Discover
Hennessy is a story of artisans. From the vineyards to the bottle finishes, all the craftsmen cultivate a deep sense of pride in what they do. Their passion is humbling. And their mastery of their craft is absolute, for each and every one. We strive to preserve these savoir-faire within the Maison and encourage transmission.Discover
Transmission is the very essence of what we believe in.
Crafting unparalleled cognacs is what we do. Who we are is altogether more detailed and diverse. Our commitments – to the land, to the people who make Hennessy exceptional, to you – are deep-rooted and engrained in our mission as a company. We craft the future.
