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.
