Richard Hennessy established a small store on the right bank of the River Charente, circa 1774 to house his rarest Eaux-de-vie, now known as the founder's warehouse. It is from these stocks that Maurice Fillioux was able in 1979 to recreate the tradition of Cognac's finest assemblage of rare spirit. Paradis is the fruit of successive marriages between hundreds of different Eaux-de-vie aged up to a hundred and thirty years of age, nurtured to maturity by successive generations of the same family of paladin cellar masters.
Dark spun amber gold. A veritable fireworks display of spices and peppery notes, softened by the fragrant scent of flowers. Finesse and elegance are the major characteristics. Perfectly harmonious in the mouth, Paradis reveals itself to be smooth, full bodied and long lasting on the palate. Its force and finesse, plus the delicate flavour of rancio, give it a perfect balance.
