This blend is then allowed to age for a minimum of two years in French oak barrels. The result is a very special product that has come to be loved around the world since it is great for everyday drinking as well as for those special moments.
This historic brand was founded in 1765, by an Irish aristocrat, Richard Hennessy, who planned to export brandy back to his native Ireland and the United Kingdom. A short time later, these plans expanded as the brand began to send its products to the USA as well, beginning in 1792. Hennessy has been a favourite in the USA ever since, which remains one of Hennessy's largest markets worldwide.
