Every limited edition bottle of Hennessy 8 is a story of craftsmanship. Of legacy. And of true savoir-faire at every step of the creative process.



Two families are behind this singular savoir-faire. The Hennessys and the Fillioux. 8 generations – so far - have inherited and passed on their expertise to their descendants.
Hennessy 8 celebrates not just the 8 rare eaux-de-vie that make up its exclusive blend, but the 7th Fillioux to be Master Blender, Yann, passing the baton to the 8th, his nephew Renaud Fillioux de Gironde.



Hennessy 8 releases are one of a kind creations, celebrating savoir-faire at every turn.
Its carafe is an artistic masterpiece designed by Arik Levy. 8 rings symbolizing 8 generations of Hennessy Master Blenders. Crafted by Baccarat, blown, cut and engraved by hand. Encasing the carafe, an ode to nature, to human creativity. Inimitable patrimony,
signed by Hennessy. 


Hennessy Paradis is defined by its graceful character and immediately delights with its rich copper colour. It is a perfectly balanced blend, both voluptuous and round, and combines smoothness and strength with a silky texture. Naturally, it has a flavourful and deep, persistent finish.

Hennessy Paradis was created by Maurice Fillioux in 1979 as a tribute to symphonic music. He compared the blend to ‘a symphonic orchestra’, as “classical music that takes you away and connects with your emotions.” The number of instruments in an orchestra is not necessarily a measure of its success, but rather the purity of sound it creates and the virtuosity of the conductor. The same is true for Hennessy Paradis, a union of exceptional eaux-de-vie selected for their individual qualities to work together to create a harmonious and graceful cognac.
