Hennessy Paradis Impérial

Introducing the recreation of a classic cognac originally made for Russian royalty.

Hennessy has a long tradition of producing the world’s best cognacs. Their latest offering harks back to 1818, when the Empress of Russia requested the Hennessy family create the finest cognac as a gift for her son, Tsar Alexander 1.

Almost 200 years later Hennessy have revived the recipe for this unique drop and enlisted the design expertise of Stéphanie Balini – known for her work with Baccarat – to create a bottle and packaging to do it justice.

The result is an amber liquid housed in a facetted glass vessel, with an 18-carrat gold-plated label “recalling the costumes of the imperial court”.

“Both statuesque and majestic, this decanter naturally evokes the splendour of the Imperial Court,” says Balini.

The bottle is presented in a cushioned purple and gold box, for presentation and preservation in a very royal manner.

Hennessy Paradis Impérial has limited availability.
