Discover the rich and storied legacy of Hennessy in a mesmerizing video tour of Chateau Bagnolet—the ancestral home of the Hennessy family. In 1765, Richard Hennessy, a retired Irish Brigade captain in the service of King Louis XV, established his own Maison (estate) in Cognac, France. From that day on, the reputation and distribution of Hennessy cognacs has extended continuously—first to Paris and the royal court, then to England, to Russia, and faraway lands. Today, nearly 250 years later, Hennessy is enjoyed on every continent. This visually stunning video highlights some of the key milestones in the history of Hennessy and traces the global expansion of the world’s finest cognacs.
