The Maison Hennessy presents Edition Particulière n°5. Available in only 60 pieces worldwide, this is the collection’s first blend by the 8th-generation Master Blender, Renaud Fillioux de Gironde.

A rare expression of Hennessy expertise, Edition Particulière lets the Master Blender tell his story through a selection of the Maison’s most precious eaux-de-vie, sourced from the priceless library of demijohns in the Founder’s Cellar.

“My elders’ legacy made it possible to craft this new blend,” says Renaud Fillioux de Gironde. “It represents a stroke of good fortune, as well as a great responsibility.”

Such a rare cognac calls for a special carafe, in Baccarat blown crystal hand-sealed with “barbichage" by Guerlain. The carafe comes in a handcrafted leather gift box.

Two colors of medallion allow customers to further personalize the carafe with initials and the decanter number, for example.

Handsome barbichage by the Ateliers Guerlain — the decorative binding and fanning of silk thread around the collar — comes in emblematic hues: Jardin d’Hiver green, Chai du Fondateur gray, Charente blue, gold (for Ugni Blanc grapes) and red for the Maison’s founder, Richard Hennessy.
