Hennessy VSOP Privilege Cognac

Since its founding in 1765, Hennessy has been guided by a passion to craft the world’s finest Cognacs – our drive to Never Stop. Never Settle. Hennessy Cognac is crafted with a strict set of standards defined by the Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde and handed down from generation to generation. However, when it comes to enjoying Cognac, we haven’t followed any rules since 1765.



Hennessy VSOP Privilège: The Original VSOP

Hennessy has established itself as a brand that aims for consistent perfection in every bottle they produce, ensuring they replicate the same taste year after year, bottle after bottle. This is the true art of artisan “savoir-faire”, of mastery in their field. Hennessy Cognac VSOP Privilege is the culmination of the craftsmanship that the estate has perfected over centuries of hard work. A traditional, careful aging process in handcrafted French oak barrels allow each of the 60 eaux-de-vie to express themselves, coming to full fruition during this maturation process.

Produced using 100% Ugni Blanc grapes, it’s a perfect harmony between the quality eaux-de-vie and the expertise of Hennessy master blenders. The VSOP itself is typical of its kind, with pleasant aromas, a delicate balance and a long-lasting finish. On the nose, soft spices are immediately made present, such as vanilla, clove and cinnamon. The maturation in French oak barrels creates a secondary scent of toasted notes. When sipping this classic Cognac, strength and smoothness converge in a beautifully orchestrated blend of flavors, followed by a softer note of freshly pressed grapes before a lengthy finish.

The very name VSOP, which has become a benchmark in age categories for all Cognac makers, began when the Prince of Wales, King George IV of Great Britain personally requested a “Very Special Old Pale” from Hennessy in 1817. This VSOP is the original, the unparalleled and one of the most famous Cognacs across the world.

How to Enjoy:
