Hennessy. A name sure to roll off the tongue in any conversation about Cognac. Or fancy pants luxury brands. After all, they produce 40% of the world’s Cognac (if you’re wondering that’s about 50 million bottles a year!) plus they’re owned by one of the world’s iconic luxury brands – Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy!
Cognac is an area in south-western France where this luxury brandy is made. VS stands for “Very Special” and Hennessy’s VS is the world’s most popular Cognac.
Much like their wine France also has a grading system for their Cognac. To be a “VS” cognac the youngest brandy in the blend has to be aged for at least two years.
