Steeped in the finest French cognac crafts­man­ship, Hen­nessy has long been an Ir­ish favourite – and not just be­cause of its Ir­ish her­itage! But this is a brand that has stayed ahead of the posse, with the mor­eish Hen­nessy Very Spe­cial to the fore.

It has the de­lec­ta­ble, but­tery nut­ti­ness of the orig­i­nal. Sub­tle bursts of sweet­ness and spice have been added. In­tense oaky notes slip into swirls of grilled al­monds and fresh grapes. In­fused with flo­ral notes, and berries and vanilla, Hen­nessy V.S. re­ally is a fresh twist on a trusted favourite.

It is, of course, de­li­cious neat, but it also works re­ally well in cock­tails. The El­der­flower Side Car

(see op­po­site page) is one gor­geous ex­am­ple to serve up at sea­sonal get-to­geth­ers.
