Maison Hennessy has lifted the veil of secrecy on a months-long project to create exceptional demijohn bottles of cognac, personalized by French artisans. The special carafes will contain a unique blend of eaux-de-vie crafted by Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, Master Blender of the celebrated cognac maker. Tradition, heritage, luxury and savoir-faire all come together in the creation of these remarkable and rare demijohns.
For the first time in its history, Hennessy is offering exclusive demijohns. These traditional bottles, used to preserve the most precious and oldest eaux-de-vie, will be fitted out in luxurious and personalized style. The woven blond wicker will be paired with sumptuous leather trim stitched by French artisans. The happy owners of the demijohns will be able to select the color of the leather and have their initials engraved on it for exquisitely detailed personalization. Conceived solely for this rare edition, the bottles will never be reproduced.
Veritable objets d’art, the carafes will contain a unique blend created specially by Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, the eighth generation of the Fillioux family to become Hennessy Master Blender. For over 250 years Hennessy has preserved its eaux-de-vie and secrets. The Master Blenders pass on this enviable heritage from generation to generation, earning Hennessy renown the world over. Renaud Fillioux de Gironde delved into the Hennessy legacy and cellars to create a remarkable and refined cognac. The blend contains only the rarest eaux-de-vie, chosen for their finesse and balance. The final blend is unfiltered so as not to distort the eaux-de-vie and preserve their elegance and subtlety.
The bespoke demijohns, signed by the talented Master Blender, are emblematic of Hennessy’s values. Preserved heritage, rarity from patient years of maturation and time-honored know-how are all intertwined, like the delicately woven wicker baskets.
