Presented from the beginning of the nineteenth century in a glass bottle – a most unusual presentation at the time – Hennessy X.O was the object of an exceptional request by Maurice Hennessy who approached his nephew, the Marquis Gérald de Geoffre, to design a decanter that would be immediately identifiable. In 1947, Gérald de Geoffre designed the first Hennessy X.O decanter whose form is still familiar to us today. The young Marquis wished to give it an aura which would be worthy of the cognac it contained: it combines gentle curves and a powerful silhouette, a tribute to the pyramid-like forms of the grape bunches that gave birth to the eaux-de-vie.
Since 1947, the silhouette of Hennessy X.O has remained unchanged. This new luxurious coffret - with a collector miniature and decorated bottle labels - is the perfect gift for the end of year.
