In 1920, James Hennessy ordered Master Blender Alfred Fillioux to create a Cognac which would be well structured yet elegant, a reflection of the Art Deco movement within the medium of the world's most refined spirit. PRIVE was created as a private release, with which James Hennessy would indulge intelligentsia and members of the arts community at his home in Cognac. With its elegant decanter and Art Deco crocodile leatherette gift box, Hennessy Privé is an elite edition of Cognac designed for appreciation by the most demanding fine spirits enthusiasts.
Formulated by master blender Yann Fillioux PRIVE is assembled from choice components of Hennessy Eaux-de-vie and aged in a selection of young oak casks. A remarkable refinement and roundness of palate defines PRIVE, elegantly structured and velvety in texture, exuding a delicate complexity of crystallized fruit notes. A century after inaugural release, Hennessy has revived Privé, a timeless and enduring Cognac for the most discerning palates of the twenty first century.
Richly golden hued. Powerful and engaging nose, complex perfumes of sweet and savoury characters, all the seasons in a day, every conceivable fruit in glass. A masterpiece of balance, round and refined, structured and velvety with delicate notes of crystallized fruit. A Cognac of great distinction for true connoisseurs, to experience its full richness, Hennessy Privé should be experienced neat.
