You will like to know that...

The House of Hennessy was founded in Cognac, France in 1765. Richard Hennessy, an Irish aristocrat, established his business by basing it on the exportation of brandies back to the UK and his native Ireland. The first shipments of Hennessy to the USA began shortly afterwards, in 1792. This cemented Hennessy's position as the favourite cognac of the USA, which still remains the biggest market for Hennessy cognacs in the world.

Hennessy X.O. was the first cognac to ever earn the classification of X.O. This stands for "extra old", in reference to the lengthy ageing process used to make this delightful cognac. Each of the 100 individual eaux-de-vie used to craft this blended cognac is aged for up to 30 years in handmade French oak casks. A masterful blend, Hennessy X.O. is meant to show off seven specific tasting notes: sweet notes, spicy edge, chocolate lull, infinite echo, rising heat, flowing flame, and wood crunches.

This fine cognac is meant to be shared. In fact, it was initially mixed as a special blend for the friends and family of the master distiller back in 1870, so it must be good! The beautiful bottle of Hennessy X.O. is embossed with grapevines that harken back to the humble grapes from which this exquisite cognac itself grows.

Hennessy XO was created by Mr. Maurice Hennessy in 1870 for personal use for his family and friends. It is created from 100 eaux-de-vie with some being aged for 30 years hence why it is an ‘extra old’ cognac.
