Hennessy has long been the leading name when it comes to cognacs. Started over 250 years ago by Richard Hennessy in the town of Cognac in southwest France, the luxury brandy now boasts some 60 different blends that are aged between three to seven years. Since its inception, Hennessy has become the most sold cognac in the world.
