Hennessy VSOP Privilege is, in 2018, a massive 200 years old. And this is tantamount to how great a blend it really is. It all came about in March of 1818, when the soon to be King of England, George IV, had a specially commissioned “tierçon cask of excellent quality old pale” presented to him by James Hennessy. And the masterminded blend created by the Hennessy and the Fillioux families that was to become the iconic VSOP Privilege was thus born.
For the 200th Anniversary, Hennessy has released its very superior old pale cognac. Originally created for royalty, Hennessy V.S.O.P. Privilège Cognac is a blend of more than 60 individual eaux-de-vie, or aged cognacs. These cognacs are carefully aged up to 15 years and blended in oak casks to create a velvety, complex blend of delicate spice and honeyed fruit flavors. V.S.O.P. stands for “very superior old pale.” Enjoy neat, on the rocks or in refined cocktails.
Bottle size: 750 ml
