Hennessy is the world’s best-selling cognac, with the bulk of its sales coming from the United States. Hennessy VS is the sales leader, not because of lower prices but rather due to incessant focus on quality, marketing and name recognition. Indeed, Hennessy VS is priced at the higher end of the VS range and often costs more than many cognac houses‘ VSOP offerings. Hennessy VS is a lively young cognac ideally suited for mixing in cocktails that require cognac. Hennessy VS can also be served neat or over ice. Hennessy VS is a blend of about 40 different eaux-de-vie from the Bois ordinaire, Bon Bois, Borderies, Fins Bois, Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne growing crus that are aged 2 and a half and five years in French Limousin oak barrels.

Hennessy VS has the finer attributes of cognac – complexity and distinguishing flavors and aromas. As such, VS is fine for casual sipping and versatile cocktail mixing. Hennessy promotes the use of its VS and VSOP cognacs to be used as cocktail mixers. Indeed, Hennessy’s web site contains dozens of recommended cognac cocktail recipes with Hennessy Very Special as the key ingredient.
