For the stately Richard Hennessy blend, excellence of savoir-faire pairs with innovation.
The Maison Hennessy’s Editions Rares collection presents a unique collaboration that celebrates the best in excellence and craftsmanship.
The iconic Richard Hennessy blend — the Maison’s most exclusive cognac, named for its founder — joins forces with Berluti, one of the most storied names in luxury leather craftsmanship, for an unexpected tribute to elegance and daring.
Preserving time-honored techniques, from the precise calligraphic gestures used to inscribe French oak tierçon barrels to the meticulous workmanship required to craft exceptional leather accessories, each house upholds a taste for innovation and an art de vivre passed down by guardians of savoir-faire from one generation to the next.
A confident and assertive blend, Richard Hennessy cognac is produced in extremely limited quantities of 12 tierçons per year, using some of the world’s scarcest eaux-de-vie, which have been carefully selected and preserved in Hennessy’s Founder’s Cellar. Like a monument, a bold carafe in Baccarat by the world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind salutes the Maison’s founder with graceful contours and an engraved script, an excerpt from Hennessy’s founding act signed by Richard Hennessy, contrasted by a crystalline geometric stopper.
Now, thanks to Berluti’s master craftsman, Richard Hennessy cognac is accompanied by a masterpiece of leatherworking savoir-faire that stands as a work of art in its own right.
A sleek, handcrafted attaché case in rich, cognachued Venezia calf leather features a central cutout, framing the carafe and its script like a trophy, while an angular sheath hugs the decanter’s curves and keeps it secure, whether inside the case or used as a standalone platform. Tucked inside the case, a custom-made cardholder is stamped with the Hennessy and Berluti logos.
The Richard Hennessy x Berluti carafe is available in a very limited edition of 150 pieces through private sales and at Houses of Hennessy worldwide.
