Demanding in its creation, yet immediate in its tasting, Hennessy V.S maintains its unique style across time. As a reflection of Hennessy's know how, V.S's personality is the result of carefully selecting some of the most expressive and distinctive eaux-de-vie. After several years of maturation in French oak casks, the eaux-de-vie are then blended with the mastery and consistency unique to the Maison Hennessy. On the nose, Hennessy Very Special brings together an intense and fruity character with oaky notes. On the palate, powerful flavours suggest grilled almonds, supported by notes reminiscent of fresh grapes. Savour it neat, on ice or with a mixer and reveal the liveliness of its character.

Maurice Hennessy, great-grandson of founder Richard Hennessy, decided to create a cognac classification. He used varying numbers of stars to designate different quality, giving rise to Hennessy's Three Star Cognac, today known as V.S (Very Special). Soon this classification was adopted by the entire industry.

Maurice Hennessy also created the X.O (Extra Old) classification of Cognac. Originally for family and friends, it is today a worldwide reference for cognacs.

In Cognac, and only in Cognac, at Hennessy, cognac is not improvised. It is raised with kindness and attention, firmness and affection. First, there is the grapevine. It yields Ugni Blanc, the light fruity grape especially suited to Hennessy Maison's double distillation in great copper stills. To ensure the aromas will be both excellent and varied, only eaux-de-vie from the four great crus of the region (Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois), are selected for the privilege of becoming great Hennessy cognacs.

Next comes the ageing time, a test of vision and imagination, since this phase can extend beyond an entire lifetime. In the Hennessy cellars, casks hewn from over 100-year-old oak trees, exclusively from French forests, stand in a dim light infused with heavy notes. A total of over 300,000 casks rest here. Hennessy is proud to have one of the largest reserve of cognac eaux-de-vie in the world. The Founder’s Cellar is in itself a symbol of this heritage, the time-defying heart of Hennessy Maison. Every single one of these eaux-de-vie has been aged for at least fifty years, and many are over a hundred years old. Once at the top of their potential, they are put in large wicker-encased glass demijohns to preserve their exceptional qualities. They will then be used to create the rarest cognacs. The oldest eau-de-vie dates from 1800.
