"The Spirit of the NBA" just got a lot smoother and sweeter.

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 an 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.

Hennessy’s classic V.S is a blend of approximately forty Eau de Vie from local farms in the Cognac region aged in new European oak for a minimum of two years. Hennessy V.S NBA Gift Box is a special limited edition box perfect for gifting. Inside is the most popular dram of Cognac in the world. On the outside is a beautifully-designed commemorative box with original artwork and details of Hennessy’s partnership with the NBA.

Smartass Corner:
Cognac’s 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.

Character Dogson
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor usually found in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based Spirits, namely Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of maturing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
Cognac, named after the town of Cognac in France, is a variety of brandy (distilled wine). It is only produced in the wine-growing region surrounding this town. Cognac must be made from specified grapes, be twice distilled in copper pot stills, and be aged at least two years in French oak barrels. Most Cognacs are aged considerably longer than the minimum legal requirement.
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
The world's largest single buyer of Hennessy Cognac in 1994 was Kim Jong Il.
There are three different qualities of Cognac recognized by law: V.S. (very special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and X.O. (Extra Old).
