About the Maker:
The collaboration and shared passion of Two Families – Hennessy and Fillioux (pronounced "Fee-You") – is at the heart of Hennessy’s unique legacy. The Hennessy and Fillioux families passed down a tradition of excellence in cognac making that ensures the consistent quality, craftsmanship and savoir-faire of Hennessy.
Cognac is both a product and a place. Like champagne, cognac the product, takes its name from its place of birth – Cognac, France. Cognac is a spirit distilled from grapes that come from the designated cognac growing area and must adhere to extremely stringent rules of production.
It’s important to emphasize the three pillars of craftsmanship: Selection, Maturation and Blending. At Hennessy, the Master Blender and Tasting Committee members gather each day to sample eaux-de-vie. They taste, evaluate and select up to 40-50 eaux-de-vie from the four best crus in the region. They taste 10,000 samples per year!
