From its seat in the French region of Cognac and throughout its 250-year history, Hennessy has proudly perpetuated an exceptional heritage based on adventure, discovery and cultivating the best that nature and man can offer. Hennessy’s longevity and success across five continents reflect the values the Maison has upheld since its creation: the transmission of a unique savoir-faire, the constant quest for innovation, and an unwavering commitment to Creation, Excellence, Legacy, and Sustainable Development. Today, these qualities are the hallmark of a House – a crown jewel in the LVMH Group – that crafts the most iconic, prestigious Cognacs Maison. Distributed in over 130 countries, Hennessy is now the leading French brand of wines and spirits in terms of value.


The most innovative and contemporary expression of Maison Hennessy, Paradis imperial was launch only in 2010.  250 years of savoir faire and 7 generations of Fillioux master blenders were needed to create this precious cognac, ultimately MADE OF PRECISION. Only 10 out 10000 eaux de vies are chosen every year to be potentially part of this blend. Paradis Imperial is a perfect alchemy of precisely selected eaux-de-vie at their « point of elegance », when power meets finesse. With light golden color and delicate taste, Hennessy Paradis Imperial defies all preconceptions about what an old cognac is.
