The Tasting Committee
The Tasting Committee
Every day at 11am precisely, the Tasting Committee enters the Grand Tasting Office… Since 1920, the Master Blender always sits in the same place. The samples of eaux-de-vie are passed around, the experts taste, evaluate and comment on them. The Master Blender notes the potential of each sample. An unchanging ceremony, guarantor of the continuity of quality of Hennessy cognacs.
Hennessy X.O Club
Hennessy X.O Club
Hennessy X.O Club is an area that is inspired by the 1940s and 1950s , a key period of time in the history of Hennessy X.O. Indeed, it is in 1947 that Gérald de Goffre designed the never before seen carafe. This area has been designed to enjoy commented tastings around the Hennessy X.O and to discover the history behind this cognac.
