Hennessy has been around for over 250 years and is THE giant in the world of Cognac, producing more than fifty million bottles of Cognac each year — more than 40% of the entire market. But when Spirit enthusiasts move to artisanal and small-batch expressions, even behemoths need to reinvent. In 2017, Hennessy’s Master Blender Yann Fillioux handed over the reins to his nephew Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, who became the 8th generation Master Blender. Renaud continues the ritzy Master Blender’s series.
After showing his chops with the 3rd edition, Renaud strikes again, unleashing his creativity with Hennessy Master Blender's Selection No. 4. You'll be pleased to know that it's just as masterfully crafted and unique, and sadly just as limited. It's an elegant single batch with Eaux-de-vie hand-selected by the Master Blender, capturing the essence of the brand in a personal, distinctive, never-to-be-replicated Cognac expression. Lively, fruity, and subtly spicy, it's masterful in its simplicity.
