Learn about Hennessy and Cognac

Cognac is a type of brandy which is named after Cognac, France. Its made in the wine-growing regions of Charente, and Charente-Maritime. Brandy has to be twice distilled in copper pot stills, and aged for at a minimum of two years in French oak barrels from Limousin, or Troncais. Cognac matures just like whiskey, and wine, in barrels. Most cognacs spend a longer time “on the wood,” than the legal requirement requires.

Seriously, who wouldn’t want a glass of these on a nice and relaxing late afternoon? Hennessy is perfect for everything! especially for parties, and is widely known as a very rich recipe for cocktails, literally something for every taste. Originally owned by Mo毛t Hennessy, the company itself currently is one of the largest and most famous cognac producers, selling more than 30 million bottles a year worldwide. Bold, but not overpowering as many have said, aside from its strong fragrances and raisin aromas on the nose it is very warm on the palate with notes of vanilla, and a minimal taste of grape. It is iconic and everybody loves it! Our liquor sells this at a reasonable price and fast delivery time frames.
