Hennessy has a new product, the cognac Paradis Impérial has landed. At Frankfurt airport, Germany. Anyone lucky enough to be travelling through Heinemann Duty Free at Frankfurt airport terminal 1B between now and the end of August will be able to purchase a bottle or two of Hennessy’s latest creation, the Paradis Imperial.
Christmas Eve 1818 the dowager empress of Russia, Maria Federovna, asked Hennessy to blend a cognac of the most exceptional quality as a present for her son Tsar Alexander I.
Paradis Impérial for the Russian Tsar
Almost two hundred years later, Hennessy pays tribute to that first commission for the Russian Imperial Court, recalling a golden era in its history by reinterpreting this unique blend of outstanding rarity and finesse: Paradis Impérial.
Paradis Impérial is a blend of rare 19th and 20th century cognacs by master blender Yann Fillioux and contained in a new design decanter with an 18 carat gold plated label and crystal cabochon.
At the end of September Paradis Impérial will be rolled out to other markets, but until then only those who can get to Frankfurt airport will be privileged enough to try it.
