Refreshing Hennessy Cocktail Recipes to Try At Home this Cocktail Day

Hennessy Very Special

Fundamentally Hennessy, created as the embodiment of the style of the Maison and its time- honoured traditions, Hennessy Very Special is a reflection of the Maison’s unique savoir-faire. The result of an exacting process of selection to find balanced eaux-de-vie of subtle and refined character, its timeless flavours are a continuing source of pleasure for cognac connoisseurs.

Great care is taken in selecting the most harmoniously balanced eaux-de-vie – those best able to reveal their full potential over a relatively short time. They are then aged for the greater part in new French oak barrels, which bring a distinctly toasty character. Combining a generous, fruity nature with notes of brown sugar and crème brūlée, this is a highly nuanced yet intensely expressive cognac. The palate reveals notes of Bourbon vanilla, toast, almond and vine fruits. Hennessy Very Special can be enjoyed on its own, over ice or in a mixed drink.
