A beautiful crystal decanter gives the wow factor to Hennessy’s latest cognac.

Hennessy Paradis Imperial Cognac – a blend of both 19th and 20th century eaux-de-vie is the creation of master blender, Yann Fillioux.  He credits his inspiration for Paradis Imperial to a unique order made back in the year 1818 by the Russian Empress, Maria Feodorovna.  She asked for a cognac that was an “excellent, very old, gold-coloured eau-de-vie of the very finest quality.”

The decanter was designed by talented newcomer – Stephanie Balaine – who made her name with Baccarat and the collection, Damoiselles.  Each bottle is uniquely numbered, and features an 18 carat gold plated label, crystal cabochon and beautifully faceted exterior.

Paradis Imperial is at a price of €1,495 per bottle.

    I’ve also heard the cognac in Paradis vs Imperial Paradis is exactly the same, ie the value your paying for is the decanter and presentation. Can anyone speak to that?

    The Paradis is 100 year old allocated and incredible! The Paradis Imperial is 130 years old and is even better! It is in a beautiful bottle but it is not the same!

    If you are lucky enough to try it do so! If you have deep pockets and want the best it is very much worth it!
