In 1765, Richard Hennessy, an Irish aristocrat in the service of France, founded in the Cognac region a trading house of spirits. His son Jacques would then give a quick boost to the company. Since then, the history of cognac has never ceased to be written with Hennessy.
Hennessy is the uncontested leader in cognac. It sells each year worldwide 50 million bottles. Indeed, VS, VSOP Privilege, XO, Paradis and Richard Hennessy are the pillars of a range of products which have become a reference among cognacs and stand for refinement and luxury icons.
