Moët Hennessy has started the 250th anniversary celebrations for Hennessy Cognac with the release of a special edition cognac entitled “The Hennessy 250 Collector Blend“. Created by notorious Cellar Master Yann Fillioux, the eaux-de-vie that make up the blend have been aging in 250 handmade, specially commissioned 250 litre Limousin oak barrels.
Before the eaux-de-vie were placed in these, they had already been aged for at least a decade under ‘optimum conditions’. The youngest eau-de-vie in the blend is 15 years old, although the company declined to give the age of the oldest eau-de-vie. 250 Collecters Blend has been blended for five years.
