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 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.

This was the first of three Cognac houses we visited. It just happened that we popped into the Tourist Office in Cognac, who were most helpful and provided us with a booklet that entitled us to a discount when visiting the cognac houses and other establishments in the region. Phoned Hennessy and was told that the English speaking tour was... More

Hennessy, by far the largest Cognac producer, has created a sort of theme-park stage for showcasing the unique process by which the region's famous spirit is made. This is a good introduction to the process that includes a visit to the museum and a tasting.

Very professional tour, we did Hennesy, Remy and a local producer and found that it was a really good balance as each tour offered something slightly different
