Hennessy V.S is the central Spirit of the historic Cognac House of Nouvelle-Aquitaine.

Hennessy is THE giant in the world of Cognac. Jas Hennessy & Co. produces more than fifty million bottles of Cognac each year — more than 40% of the entire market. Interestingly, this most famous French company located in Cognac, France, was founded by Irishman Richard Hennessy in 1765. The modern company produces nearly two dozen core Spirits and many more collectors editions and limited releases as a subsidiary of Moët Hennessy, which in turn is owned in partnership by Diageo and LVMH.

Certainly, Hennessy’s classic V.S is — by far — their most popular dram of Eaux de Vie. It is a blend of approximately forty Eaux de Vie from local farms in the Cognac region aged in new European oak. The letter grading system was created by Maurice Hennessy in 1865, so they take it very seriously. The V.S signifies that the youngest Spirit in this blend has been aged a minimum of two years.

Smartass Corner:
Hennessy V.S is the modern version of their historic "3 Star" Cognac.

About the Flavor Spiral
What does Hennessy VS Cognac taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Hennessy VS Cognac and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
