Hennessy V.S. is a blend of the finest cognacs, aged to full maturity in oak barrels in the town of Cognac, where Richard Hennessy established his company in 1765. Full bodied with a pronounced aroma of oak and hazelnuts, a rich floral taste with tones of red berries and vanilla. Still operated by the Hennessy family, this cognac is aged for at least 2-5 years.
In 1865, inspired by a decorative handle of his offi ce window, Maurice Hennessy created the now-famous star symbol that he would use to classify his Cognacs. Thus was born the 3- Star Cognac, better known today as Hennessy VS which is a complex blend of more than forty eaux-de-vie (brandy parcels) from the four premier growing areas of the Cognac region.
