Fine cognacs are a distillation of expert skills and a passion for excellence. They have a presence and even a soul (we are dealing with spirits, after all!). Aside from their perfection, they embody a respect for tradition rooted in history, and an openness to modern modes of expression. After reserving the passkey that enables you to join one of Hennessy’s remarkable guided tours, the visit will immerse you in the arcana of its trade, the core of its art. Led by an expert, the 90-minute Hennessy Signature tour reveals the establishment’s history, skills and secrets, and culminates in the tasting of Hennessy V.S. and V.S.O.P. As an additional attraction, the Hennessy X.O tour tells the story of the emblematic X.O hallmark.
Then the Hennessy Exception tour, a two-hour visit for small groups, takes the public behind the scenes to discover the rarest of cognacs with a visit to Le Paradis, that haven where the very oldest libations are aged to perfection. Finally, Hennessy now offers visitors an even more remarkable experience. By reservation, the De la Vigne au Cognac tour lasting half a day visits the most private areas of the domain: vineyard, distillery and so on. The guide describes the rituals of blending and the art of tasting. The climax is an opportunity to savor the jewels in Hennessy’s crown… and explore the firm’s latest treasure trove, created by Vhils.
