In 1765, Richard Hennessy laid the foundations of a priceless collection made up of his most exceptional eaux de vie. Since then, eight generations of the Hennessy family have enriched the Founder`s Warehouse with their own contributions of the finest cognacs produced during their lifetimes. It is from this collection that Hennessy has created Richard Hennessy, as a homage to its founder. Richard Hennessy is made up of more than 100 of the most exceptional eaux de vie, some of which date from the early 19th century. Each one has been selected for its unique qualities.
