Robb Report Hosts Exclusive Tasting of Hennessy Prestige Cognac

[From Our Partners]

Hidden behind a gilded door in the New York Palace hotel, the members-only Rarities lounge evokes the bygone elegance of 19th-century New York. Inspired by the city’s historic gentlemen’s clubs, the 25-seat salon is located within the hotel's famed Villard Mansion.

On June 11, Hennessy and Robb Report hosted an exclusive tasting in this intimate venue. Thirty Robb Report Club members were invited to meet privately with Maurice Hennessy, an eighth-generation direct descendant of the founder of Hennessy.

Upon arrival, guests were greeted with glasses of mixed Hennessy VSOP Privilège drinks. A rich blend of eaux-de-vie from the four best growing areas of the Cognac region, it was the perfect introduction to the premier expressions of the Hennessy portfolio.

As guests mingled, they had plenty of time to speak with Hennessy and admire the impressive collection of Hennessy Prestige Cognacs on display. After an overview of his family legacy and the expressions of the brand, Hennessy invited everyone to sample a glass of Hennessy Paradis Impérial. The newest addition to the Prestige range, it was inspired by a custom blend that the label created as a royal gift. Elegant and subtle, this remarkable Cognac contains more than 100 of the finest eaux-de-vie from the 19th and 20th centuries.

As the evening came to an end, guests were served a glass of the stunningly complex Hennessy X.O. An unforgettable experience, the tasting provided rare insight into one of the most remarkable collections of eaux-de-vie in the world. (www.hennessy.com)
