A valuable cognac ripens slowly in space and time. This is even legally regulated, because Cognac is an Appelation d’Origine Controlée, a protected designation of origin. That gold brownish shimmering distillation in grand tumblers embodies true elegance and distinction. Cultivated gentleman, in the left a chosen cigar, in the right the cognac, lift the glasses from leather armchair to leather armchair to bring out a toast. The perfectly fitting drip might be the complex but balanced tasting Hennessy Richard or the famous rich XO by Hennessy. Hennessy offers exclusive cognacs consisting of a special assortment of 8 different eaux-de-vies from the passed 8 generations which have enriched Richard Hennessy’s cellar over the past decades.
