For this milestone anniversary, the House wished to pay tribute to the legacy of Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège, but with a timelessly forward-looking design. The original Cognac bottle, known as the charentaise, dates back to the mid-19thcentury. For Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège’s 200th anniversary, Hennessy has rethought the architectural, slope-shouldered charentaise in a limited-edition carafe. Archival design elements, notably the House’s vine leaf motif and vintage stamps, were inspired from the Cognac’s original label. This homage to the past comes in a distinctly modern coffret in brushed aluminum, bearing words excerpted from the future King George IV’s request for a “very superior old” Cognac. The use of copper-colored embellishment nods to the traditional alembic stills used to distill eaux-de-vie; its handle in full-grain natural leather will take on the patina of time, recalling the aprons worn by coopers, the artisans who craft barrels from staves of aged oak.
