Hennessy Paradis Imperial is the jewel of the Hennessy collection, the unprecedented alliance of age and finesse. A cognac made of precision embodying the apogee of the art of selection, the relentless quest for finesse throughout 7 generations of Master Blenders from the Fillioux family.From any given harvest, the average number of eaux-de-vie with the potential to one day join this blend are a rare few: only 10 out of 10 000. Identifying and nurturing such finesse requires ultimate expertise and talent.The Master Blender savoir-faire is also to define the right ageing conditions to raise a fine eau-de-vie to its point of elegance: the decisive and fleeting moment when the eau-de-vie reaches its apogee, ready to join the blend.Hennessy Paradis Imperial is a blend of unique character imbued with unexpected contrasts and an ethereal grace. Its celadon-tinged golden hue is surprisingly lighter than that of other traditional cognacs. This is due to the use of mature oak casks, which have few tannins, to preserve finesse. Likewise, despite the age of its eaux-de-vie, Hennessy Paradis Imperial features a light structure and an absolutely delicate yet persistent finish characterized by floral notes that are as pure and crisp as a spring day, edged with a smoky, spicy accent.About the product production: Cognac can only be made in the Cognac region in South West France. Cognac is made out of wine, the primary varietal being white Ugni Blanc. The region’s clayey and chalky soils sa well as a temperate climate are making the wines especially adapated for distillation. Hennessy uses four central crus selected from the best wine growers in the Central Region: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fin Bois. After being distilled twice in copper stills, the spirits are preserved in French oak barrels. Then, each Hennessy cognac is blended based on a specific composition of eaux-de-vie which are selected for their aroma, age, and character. Hennessy Comité de Dégustation led by Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde (8th generation) embodies this Savoir-Faire passed on for 250 years.About the brand: From its seat in the French region of Cognac since 1765 and throughout its more than 250-year history, Hennessy has proudly perpetuated an exceptional heritage based on adventure, discovery and cultivating the best that nature and man can offer.
