Hennessy Introduces Designer Decanter


Hennessy cognac has released a new decanter designed by architect Daniel Libeskind for one of the rarest bottlings in their collection, Richard Hennessy, named after the founder of the brand.

The Richard Hennessy Cognac is made with some of the rarest eaux-de-vie from Hennessy’s reserves, aged between 40 to 50 years and up to 150 years old derived from only 12 French oak barrels allocated every year to make the cognac.

The Richard Hennessy cognac was bottled at 40% alcohol by volume [80 proof] and is said to contain notes of leather, orange peel and tobacco.

The Polish-born Libeskind is perhaps best known for designing the rebuilt World Trade Center in New York, the Jewish Museum Berlin (Germany), the Royal Ontario Museum (Toronto, Canada), Crystals at City Center (Las Vegas, US), and the Museum of Zhang Zhidong (Wuhan, China).

Richard Hennessy cognac is being made available this month in the UK for $6,800 per bottle.
