Hennessy V.S.O.P reimagines the classic cognac blend. A harmonious cognac, its complex combination of eaux-de-vie merge to create a smooth, well-structured and sophisticated spirit. The ideal expression of a perfectly balanced cognac, Hennessy V.S.O.P originated from an order placed in 1817 by the future King George IV of the United Kingdom for a "Very Superior Old Pale" cognac. The first V.S.O.P - and still a favourite throughout the world - Hennessy V.S.O.P is a reflection of the enduring expertise of the Hennessy Tasting Committee and the Master Blender. Made using a blend of eaux-de-vie that are between four and 15 years old, and mostly matured in seasoned French oak barrels, it finds the ideal balance between character and smoothness.
