In October 1817, the future King Georges IV of Great Britain a great connoisseur of cognac, ordered a Very Superior Old Pale cognac eau de vie from hennessy. The letters VSOP thus appeared for the first time on the records of a cognac sent to Britain. These letters have since become the benchmark of the category and are today used by the entire profession.
Aged up to 15 years, the cognacs are patiently brought to maturity in seasoned French oak casks that have given up their bolder tannins. Hennessy Privilege VSOP cognac is a complex and accomplished blend of over 60 different eaux-de-vie selected exclusively from the four premier growing areas of the cognac region.
Hennessy is the clear cognac market leader in the category not because of lower prices but rather due to quality, marketing and name recognition. Indeed, HENNESSY VSOP COGNAC PRIVILEGE is priced at the high end of the V.S.O.P range of most cognac houses V.S.O.P. offerings.
