A Pewter Demijohn from a Private Collection
Housed in a one-of-a-kind metal-framed decanter, La Dame de la Richonne is an ode to Hennessy's legacy as the biggest Cognac house. The metal lattice basket honors the demijohn, or "dame-jean" handblown flask traditionally used to house Cognac.
This particular bottle is from a private collection located in France, and this particular blend was produced in the 1980s. The Cognac itself, however, is a unique blend of exceedingly old eaux-de-vie selected by Maurice and Yann Filioux, the former Master Blenders at Hennessy Cognac house.
The eaux-de-vie within is a special blend hand selected by the Hennessy lineage of Master Blenders themselves.
Presentation of the decanter
The pewter decanter comes with all the trimmings, and is new and unopened. The presentation box and original label are all still intact.
About Hennessy Cognac
You may think, that with Hennessy’s ability to innovate and push boundaries, they are a thoroughly ‘modern’ Cognac brand. This is a large part of their immense success and influence. The very French brand based in the Charente region, in fact, dates all the way back to 1765 - to Ireland - but have managed to shapeshift enough times to remain more relevant than ever before - with current Master Blender Renaud Fillioux. Their range of uber-trendy products is ever expanding, and their marketing campaigns all the more captivating. There is no doubt that ‘Henny’ culture is alive and kicking: both Cognac and a fifth of Hennessy are mentioned in what seems like hundreds of songs.
