Hennessy is one of the oldest houses to hail from Cognac, dating back as far as 1765 when set up by the Irishman Richard Hennessy. To this day they hold some of the oldest and rarest reserves of eaux de vie. Remarkably the current Master Blender, Yann Fillioux is the 7th generation of the same family to head the blending process at the house.
X.O is a powerful cognac, harmonious elegant. Masculine & generous due to its rich & spicy aromas, with structured nuances, dominated by the richness of the oak & black pepper aromas. With a blend of 100 eaux-de-vie all aged between 10-30 years this was the first of its kind being first created in 1870 and remains to be the XO that all others are compared with.
