Hennessy 8 Cognac Marks The Beginning Of A New Day
Yann Fillioux, the Master Taster and Blender of Hennessy in Cognac, France, has decided it was time to step down and hand this great responsibility – along with the key of the cellars – to his nephew, Renaud Fillioux de Gironde.
Such an occasion could not remain unmarked, which is why Hennessy has released the new Hennessy 8 Cognac, a premium, limited-edition cognac. Please note that only 250 decanters of the new collector’s cognac will be available, with the first batch including 100 boxes worth $40,000.
Created by Yann Fillioux, Hennessy 8 comes in a gorgeous Baccarat decanter that features 8 rings, with a charming crystal stopper showing off engraved floral motifs.
Arik Levy designed this gorgeous bottle, with the renowned artist having the difficult task of making 250 years of finest savoir-faire obvious, while looking stylish and elegant. The blend of this exquisite cognac consists of eight carefully selected eaux-de-vie, with the interesting fact being that seven of them were selected by Yann Fillioux, and the 8th was selected by Renaud Fillioux de Gironde.
The Hennessy 8 Cognac is presented in a precious trunk, made with 25 layers of wood, while each decanter and box is numbered and signed by Arik Levy himself. Fully customized, your trunk will also feature four tasting glasses, designed exclusively for Hennessy 8; a certificate of authenticity signed by Yann Fillioux will also come in the package.
