About Hennessy:

Hennessy (part of the LVMH group) is a cognac brand based in France, created in 1765 by Richard Hennessy. Today the Mansion is the largest producer and exporter of Cognac in the world with more than 1,000 employees.
The Hennessy XXO “extra extra old”, created in 1870 alongside Hennessy XO opened a new era within the world of spirits. Yann Filioux, 7th generation Master Blend decided to re-create Hennessy XXO in 2018 and developed the product around the idea of “see what others don’t”. Within Travel Retails the traveler can experience a unique Hennessy XXO tasting through food pairing, gifting service and immersive music atmosphere.
