This best-selling cognac was created in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy, great grandson to the founder, Richard Hennessy. It is a complex blend of over 100 “eaux-de-vie” from the best 4 premier crus and aged up to 30 years -the aromas created are masculine and generous blend with notes of ripe fruit, cinnamon, clove and vanilla. This cognac was made exclusively for the private use of the Hennessy family. The XO stands for “eXtraOld”, and is the only XO cognac for the last 100 years.
Originally created for royalty in 1817, a VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) was ordered by the future
King Georges IV of Britain. Nowadays the cognac consists of a complex and delicate blend of around 60 “eaux-de-vie” from the 4 cognac premiers crus. The V.S.O.P is aged up to 15 years in seasoned French oak casks to create a velvety, complex blend of delicate spice & honeyed fruit flavours.
