The House of Hennessy is defying the global economic crisis with the release of its $1300 Hennessy Paradis in Magnum.
Presented in a crystalline-glass 1.5 litre decanter and a new jewel box with an original opening system, the Paradis Magnum offers extraordinary finesse.
Hennessy Paradis is one of the world’s most rare, limited and unique cognacs. It is made from the marriages of hundreds of different eaux-de-vie aged up to 130 years old.
Since its foundation in 1765, Hennessy has built up what is now the finest collection of eaux-de-vie in the world, nurtured by seven successive generations of master blenders from the same family.
The cognac is smooth, full-bodied and displays spices and peppery notes, softened by the fragrant scent of flowers.
Long-lasting on the palate, the cognac should be enjoyed in a tall, thin glass that narrows slightly at the top to retain the aroma and transmit the warmth of the hands to the spirit.
Hennessy Paradis Magnum is now available nationally. For further details, click here.
