The Hennessy Paradis Impérial: A Gift Fit for a Tsar

The Hennessy Paradis Impérial: Made for Kings

A blend of rare 19th and 20th century cognacs, the Hennessy Paradis Impérial is  inspired by a cognac Richard Hennessy created in 1818 for Tsar Alexander I as a present from his mother.

Originally blended by the Filioux family, seventh-generation Master Blender Yann Filioux, has hence reinterpreted this unique blend.  Consequently, Yann Filioux has created an exceptional offering through blending superior selections of eaux-de-vie that were produced for aging.

Only 1 in 1000 eaux-de-vie tasted by the Master Blender will become part of this unique blend. Only the eaux-de-vie that have reached the  “point of elegance” at the moment when power meets finesse, will be selected to create the Paradis Impérial blend.

The result is a shimmering, amber-coloured cognac with a hint of sophisticated refinement. On the nose, one can experience aromas of jasmine and orange blossoms, spiced with smoky accents. In addition to its amazing aroma, enjoy the taste of rye and nuts with a smooth and mellow texture. This offering is also notably drier with a thinner coating. Combined, the Paradis Impérial give off a sense of structure and power in the back.
