Celebrate nature with a top-shelf Cognac.

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.

Now you can celebrate nature with Hennessy VSOP Privilège x Julien Colombier Cognac: their limited-edition collaboration with Julien Colombier, a French artist famous for his hypnotic paintings of tropical jungles and rainforests. This prestigious blend is the result of work of eight generations of Master Blenders. It’s the perfectly balanced Cognac, made from Eaux-de-vie that were mainly aged in partially used barrels. Expect a sipper with a great character of aromas of fresh vanilla, cinnamon, and toasty notes, rounded by subtle oak tannins.

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 is a form of distilled Brandy. For a spirit to be labeled Cognac, it must be made from specified grapes, of which Ugni Blanc is the one most widely used. It must be twice distilled in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels from Limousin or Tronçais.
The French believe it or not, aren’t actually all that fond of Cognac. They export almost 90% of their production.
Laws concerning Cognac-making are strict as hell. Only three types of grapes may be used, and they can only be harvested in October; Cognac must be aged for at least two years in barrels made from French oak - and get this, from one of two specific forests! Then, the stills must be of a particular French shape (no, not the baguette shape); and we guess La Marseillaise has to be sung during the entire process.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
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.
