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.
