Hennessy Richard Cognac
All the grapes used to create Hennessy cognacs are born of the unique soil of the Cognac region surrounding the River Charente. Ugni Blanc grapes are harvested, crushed, fermented, and then distilled according to strict practices perfected over time.
Region: Cognac, France
Appearance: amber color
Nose/palate: delicate nuances of flowers, mixed spices, nutmeg and blanched fennel. The power and depth of the aroma is echoed in the mouth, where the spices, notably pepper, play a key supporting role. Then the structure takes shape: leather notes gather, alongside nuts and candied fruits.
Richard Hennessy founds the House of Hennessy in 1765, in Cognac, France. With his partners, he succeeds in establishing a thriving business exporting brandies, mostly to his native Ireland, and England.
