Saturday, June 4, is National Cognac Day. Celebrate with some of the original classic cocktails from Hennessy, the world’s #1 Cognac. Hennessy established the now booming V.S.O.P category in 1817 when the future King George IV of England asked the House of Hennessy to supply him with a special Cognac, a blend then described as a “Very Superior Old Pale.” Hennessy Privilège is a Cognac that celebrates character and smoothness and is a great expression of mastery. It is recognized for its harmonious and well-structured blend, the perfect base for a classic cocktail.

Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège is one that easily matches every occasion and style – on the rocks or accompanied with your own special mix.

Some of the classic V.S.O.P recipes include:
