Charente

VISITING COGNAC

Delight in the picturesque city of Cognac and experience the exquisite alchemy of heritage, savoir-faire and art de vivre that makes Hennessy cognacs so appreciated the world over.

Visiting Cognac

Though famous for its eaux-de-vie, Cognac has roots stretching back to the Roman Empire. A thriving merchant town since the Middle Ages, it comes to life through the richness of its architectural detail: linger along the banks of the Charente River, wander through charming cobblestone streets, and spot the salamander insignia of King François Ier, the city's most illustrious son.
