Hennessy Paradis was created in 1979 by Maurice Fillioux. Drawing from the legacy of his grandfather eaux de vie, Maurice Fillioux gave life to this perfectly harmonious cognac. It takes its name from the Paradis cellar, a legendary place at the Hennessy Maison. "Paradis" refers to the cellar used exclusively for the ageing of Hennessy’s most exceptional eaux-de-vie.The Paradis cellar is the guardian of the Maison’s soul. For at least five decades, the eaux-de-vie - stored in oak casks whose tannins have been released over the years - matured slowly until they reach an incomparable level of purity.Hennessy Paradis is composed of a hundred eaux-de-vie aged for at least 25 years, from the very best years represent the finest of each terroir. Selected immediately after distillation, they are pure yet rich, with a pronounced floral nature.
