Arrive at La Richonne, the Hennessy Headquarters located on the banks of the Charente River and begin your tour with the Chai des Pavillons. Here, learn about the history of Hennessy and how the Cognac House became world famous.

Visit the Faïencerie Cellar where the Hennessy Cognacs are aged but also the Chai du Fondateur. Finally, it will be time to sample different types of eaux de vies. Tastings include Hennessy X.O and Hennessy Richard.

Hennessy X.O (Extra Old) is a highly regarded cognac produced by the House of Hennessy, one of the oldest and most famous cognac producers in France. It was created in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy for his circle of friends and was the first cognac to be designated as "X.O," which stands for "Extra Old."

Hennessy X.O is a blend of around 100 different eaux-de-vie (a French term for "waters of life," referring to the distilled spirits) aged for a minimum of 10 years, though some of them are much older. This aging process takes place in oak barrels, which contributes to the cognac's rich, full-bodied flavor profile.

The flavor of Hennessy X.O is characterized by its complexity and depth, with notes of candied fruit, spice, and subtle hints of cocoa and sweet vanilla. The cognac is known for its smooth texture and long-lasting finish, making it a favorite among cognac enthusiasts. It is often enjoyed neat or on the rocks to fully appreciate its nuanced flavors.

Hennessy X.O is presented in a distinctive, elegantly designed bottle, and it's considered a luxury item, often associated with sophistication and prestige.

Hennessy Richard is a luxury cognac produced by Hennessy. Named after Richard Hennessy, the founder of the company, this cognac is a blend of more than 100 of the finest eaux-de-vie, some of which are aged up to a century. The resulting spirit is renowned for its unique complexity, depth, and richness of flavor.

Hennessy Richard is considered one of the top offerings in the Hennessy range and is often seen as a symbol of luxury and status due to its quality and high price point. It's presented in a beautifully designed bottle and is typically enjoyed neat by connoisseurs who appreciate its intricate blend of flavors.

The tour ends at the Hennessy Boutique, where you will have free time to discover all the Cognacs and Collections that are available for purchase.
