HENNESSY BLACK COGNAC
Hennessy is the largest cognac house in the world. Founded by Irish immigrant Richard Hennessy, the House of Hennessy commands approximately 40% of the world cognac market. Hennessy produces a full range of quality products from its V.S. to Paradise cognacs. Hennessy is now owned by French luxury goods conglomerate Moet-Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
Hennessy is the clear cognac market leader in the category not because of lower prices, but rather due to quality, marketing and name recognition. Indeed, Hennessy’s V.S., V.S.O.P Privilege and XO Cognacs are priced at the high end of the range of most cognac houses‘ Cognac offerings.
Hennessy Black was created in 2009 specifically for use in cocktails. Hennessy Black is intended to be used as a mixer not just in Cognac cocktails but also to be used in place of other spirits in cocktails where cognac is not the main spirit.
