Homage to Excellence

Richard Hennessy, blended in homage to the founder, is appreciated by knowledgeable connoisseurs who set great store by extremely elegant cognacs. Well-rounded but with infinite possibilities, mature and at the same time ever-youthful, this perfectly balanced aromatic cognac is the quintessential Hennessy.


• In 1765, Richard Hennessy laid the foundations of a priceless collection made up of his most exceptional eaux-de-vie. Since then, eight generations of the 
Hennessy family have enriched the Founder's  Warehouse with their own contributions of the finest cognacs produced during their lifetimes. It is from
this collection that Hennessy has created Richard  Hennessy, as a homage to its founder.


• Richard Hennessy is made up of more than 100 of  the most exceptional eaux-de-vie, aged up to 200 years. Each one has been selected for its unique 
qualities. The finesse of the finished cognac is a testament to years spent slowly maturing in oak  barrels.

Tasting notes

• Balanced and complex, the rich bouquet slowly  releases a succession of aromas that have built up  over the years: vanilla, spices, pepper and delicately 
fragrant flowers.In the mouth, the infinitely refined  texture reveals an extraordinary palette of flavors  that blends spices, the subtle essence of ripe fruit 
and the finesse of oak.

How to enjoy Richard Hennessy

• To savour the full flavor of this exceptional cognac is a privilege. Take a tulip-shaped taster’s glass, or a small snifter of the finest crystal.  Ensure the opening of the glass is small. This will guarantee the gradual release of the aromas. According to Talleyrand, celebrated 18th-century  French politician and illustrious customer of Hennessy, to enjoy a cognac such as Richard  Hennessy one must "cradle the glass in the palm of one’s hand, swirl the spirit to release its full aroma, lift it to one’s nostrils, inhale deeply  and then... set it down and discuss its virtues".
