Hennessy was founded in 1765 by Richard Hennessy in Cognac, France. Throughout the years, he thrived by exporting brandies back to his native Ireland and England. Twenty years later, Richard hired Jean Fillioux as the first Master Blender. Since then, the families have been extremely close. 8 generations of these families have continued to run and oversee the aging and blending of Hennessy products. Today, Yann Fillioux holds the reigns as the Master Blender and also crafted Hennessy Paradis – a cognac of 100 eaux-de-vie. Hennessy became a prestige company when the Prince of Wales (who was a cognac connoisseur) and the feature King George IV of Great Britain ordered “very superior old pale” from the house. V.S.O.P has since become a benchmark for the cognac community. It wasn’t until 1856 that the brand received its permanent symbol: the coat-of-arms. The Bras Armé is an arm and axe that pay homage to the founder’s military service. His service earned him French citizenship and land in Cognac.
In 1859, Hennessy made its first delivery. The cognac first made its Far East debut in China and quickly became a foreign ambassador for French Culture. To this day, the Henny is still an icon in Chinese culture and used to celebrate during family celebrations and at high-end restaurants. The most popular cognac in the world was established in 1865 as Hennessy V.S. Maurice Hennessy, Richard’s great-grandson, created a star classification system to distinguish cognac’s qualities. The brand finally reaches the United States in 1972 and quickly gained popularity. In 2011, Yann Fillioux created the Paradis Impérial after he was inspired by a legend of a rare blend of 1818 Cognac. This blend was reportedly created for Czar Alexander I of Russia. Yann and designer Stéphanie Balini created the faceted shape for the ornate crystal decanter.
Hennessy Master Blender’s Edition Cognac has been created by 7th generation blender Yann Fillioux.
