The art of entertaining

The storied Hennessy estate has hosted many VIP guests, entertaining them with the French art de vivre for which the Maison is known.

The art of entertaining

The art of entertaining is a family tradition at Maison Hennessy, as anyone who has attended an intimate dinner at the Château de Bagnolet can attest. Built on the banks of the Charente River in Cognac, in 1810, and surrounded by seven acres of grounds, the former Hennessy family estate and its sumptuous decor inspired by travel, symbolize the art de vivre for which the Maison is renowned, immersing guests in a multi-sensory journey through its heritage and savoir-faire. Internationally inspired menus featuring local products from neighboring terroirs take pride of place at receptions for VIP friends of the House from all over the world.

Art of hospitality

Created by Maurice Fillioux in 1979, the cognac Hennessy Paradis is known for its voluptuous and harmonious aroma.
It consists of eaux-de-vie, which are a reflection of the personality of such a delightful cognac: supple, light and round.
They are blended into an excellent cognac defined by its graceful, silky character, highlighting its finely nuanced and harmoniously balanced aromatic qualities.
Its superb display of coppery gold colours is an indication of the many years it has spent ageing in old casks.
