Jas Hennessy & Co, the French whisky brand headquartered in Cognac, is celebrating its 250th Anniversary this August 2015, with a worldwide tour of excellence, bringing Hennessy Cognac spirit to the countries that have embraced the brand since 1765. Hennessy unveils a very special blend made from specific handcrafted 250 barrels – perpetuating the tradition of celebratory blends.
A Unique Celebrating Blend
To mark 250 years of savoir-faire, tradition and innovation, Hennessy has created the H250 blend. Master Blender Yann Fillioux and his Comité de Degustation have selected over 100 eaux-de-vie from the House Reserve, aged from 15 to 35 years. 250 barrels, handcrafted specifically for the occasion, each containing 250 liters of this unique celebratory blend are currently resting in the mythic founder’s cellar on the banks of the Charentes. Masterfully expressed – the H250 blend is powerful, accurate and of great distinction, a unique flavor that embodies Hennessy’s 250 years of crafting the future – a landmark moment in the history of the Maison.
In creating the contemporary silhouette of the carafe, designer Stephanie Balini draws inspiration from the sensual curves of the House’s timeless icon and its legacy – Crafting the future since 1765. The pure lines of the sleek carafe stand in elegant contrast to its golden contents. From the base to the stopper, it reflects a radiant light as though it were cut from a single brilliant stone.
This luxurious collector’s item embodies the passion that the House has handed down for generations. It is a gift for every admirer of Hennessy cognac and an invitation to join the 250th Anniversary celebration. The price for the Hennessy 250 Collectors blend is $260 and is available at select retail and duty free outlets across the country.
