Origin: In 1774, Richard Hennessy set up a small warehouse on the right bank of the River Charente to house his rarest eaux-de-vie. It is now known as the Founder’s Warehouse. Since then, eight generations of the Hennessy family have built up what is now the finest collection of old eaux-de-vie in the world. It is from these that Hennessy has been able to create Paradis Extra.
Paradis Extra is the fruit of a series of marriages between hundreds of different eaux-de-vie, nurtured to maturity by successive generations of the same family of cellar masters. A veritable fireworks display of spices and peppery notes, softened by the fragrant scent of flowers. Finesse and elegance are the major characteristics. Perfectly harmonious in the mouth, Paradis Extra reveals itself to be smooth, full-bodied and long-lasting on the palate. Its force and finesse, plus the delicate flavour of rancio, give it a perfect balance.

Irish nobleman Richard Hennessy established an eaux-de-vie trading business in Cognac, France, in 1765. The land on which the business was created was given to Hennessy as compensation for service as a mercenary for King Louis XV. In 1794, the company began its deliveries of Hennessy Cognac to the newly independent United States. Hennessy later introduced Jean Fillioux as its first Master Blender in 1800. In 1813 the trademark "Jas Hennessy & Co." was adopted. Hennessy grew more popular among the aristocracy, and in 1817 George IV ordered a Hennessy V.S.O.P. (an excellent pale cognac eaux-de-vie). By 1840, after the creation of the Hennessy agency in London, export sales made up 90% of profits. The first labels with the name of Jas Hennessy & C° and the 'Bras Armé' were presented in 1856. And in 1864, a bottling plant was opened and the Hennessy trademarks were registered. A system for classifying cognacs was created by Maurice Hennessy in 1865.Not until 1868 did Hennessy expand internationally, delivering that year to Japan Hennessy cognac.The X.O. appellation (which has since become a worldwide reference for cognacs), was created by Maurice Hennessy.Hennessy delivered X.O. to Shanghai, China in 1872. According to its own corporate history, by the end of the 19th century, Jas Hennessy & Co. became the world market leader of eaux-de-vie in 1890.
