Hennessy 250 Collector Blend

Back in 2015 Hennessy celebrated their 250th anniversary with the release of a limited-edition Hennessy 250 Collector Blend. This distinctive Cognac comprises eaux-de-vie matured in Hennessy’s cellars—located just across the Charente River from the castle where King François I was born—for 15 to 35 years. To put that into perspective, the eaux-de-vie of VS-, VSOP-, and XO-grade Cognacs must be aged at least 2, 4, or 6 years, respectively.

Hennessy’s master blender and taster, Yann Fillioux, who represents the seventh generation of his family involved with the production of Hennessy Cognacs, spent four years perfecting the blend, drawing from dozens of different eaux-de-vie, each double-distilled from wine of Ugni Blanc grapes grown in the chalky, limestone-rich soil and mild climate of the Cognac AOC

The result is a rich amber Cognac delivering a spicy aroma and notes of nutmeg, bitter orange, peppermint leaf, saffron, and licorice, with a honeyed finish. Complex and powerful, yet balanced and elegant, it is a fitting tribute to Fillioux’s predecessors and ancestors alike, and another feather in the cap of Fillioux’s distinguished 50-year career. Only 250 barrels were made, each holding 250 liters.

Description

Hennessy was founded in 1765 by Irishman Richard Hennessy, Captain in the French Army. It took Hennessy just a few years to dominate the market and actually they have never lost their leading position since. Hennessy was the first producer which came with a Extra Old (XO) and they also invented the star-ranking system. In 1971 Hennessy merched with Moët et Chandon forming Moët-Hennessy. After their 1987 merger with Louis Vuton the newly formed company LVMH became one of the largest conglomerates in luxury products. One year later, in 1988, Bernard Arnault purchased a share of LVMH and eventually became the new owner of Hennessy, still world’s largest producer of Cognac.
