the art of appreciation
In a series of videos, Hennessy details the creation of Hennessy Paradis Impérial, the latest creation by Master Blender Yann Fillioux to join Hennessy’s permanent collection. An unprecedented alliance of age and finesse brought into existence by the Master Blender’s exceptional precision, the Paradis Impérial encapsulates the distinctive art and relentless quest for the finest eaux-de-vie throughout seven generations of Master Blenders from the Fillioux family. In the fourth of five videos, Scottish actor Iain Glen shows us how to drink the exquisite cognac.
Hennessy Paradis Impérial should be served as precisely and artfully as the creation process itself. It is best enjoyed neat between 2 and 4 centiliters at room temperature in a tall, tulip-shaped crystal glass, which is the purest way to taste the elixir. Because Hennessy Paradis Impérial is the purest expression of the Master Blender’s art, choosing the atmosphere and company to best savour all its subtleties, is an art into itself. Share this experience with other connoisseurs. To enhance the vivacious characteristics of Hennessy Paradis Impérial, taste it at temperatures between 12° and 14°, paired with slightly sour and fresh appetizers.
