I’ve now been to the Hennessey distillery three times over the past ten years and I never tire of it. Yes, it’s just a distillery and arguably if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all, but this one is different. The first thing that’s striking is the beautiful setting in the centre of Cognac on the river Charante, which I... More

I read up on the website that from December 1 2014, the guided tours and visitors center will be temporarily closed due to renovations and that the official reopening is planned for June 2015. So we rocked up on 29 July after driving for 2 hours to find that it was all closed until September 2015. We thought we did... More

This distillery was a "must" on my travel itinerary but after driving 1.1/2 hours from Niort to Cognac, we found that it was closed for renovations and would not be open until September 2015. We were very disappointed. especially as the Hennessey brand is one of my favourite cognacs. We did take a peek of the courtyard/entrance and can imagine... More

A damp, rich smelling environment,ripe with history and Hennessy is worth the tour,taste and time. Make sure you have good walking shoes,some food in your belly and go.

The tour is interesting and the cognac is delicious. The tour guide was knowledgeable. I didn't understand the little boat ride, though...looked to be a bridge we could have used.

I at that time, I was working in a company with Moet Hennesy distributor, also was impressed . A bottle of brandy , to be going through several stages until the very impressive . And vineyards ... I think everyone should have... More

This tour was informative and enjoyable but not as friendly or professional feeling as Remy. It was still a very interesting tour and if you are able to do more than one this gives good additional information - the view inside the machinery used in making the eau-de-vie and the fact that you can take photos inside.

We didn't have a reservation but it was a slow day so we were able walk in and join the next English-speaking tour. The tour guide gave an informative presentation but it didn't feel very personal. The tasting was okay, as expected.
