The perfect Cognac to drink
Hennessy Pure White Cognac is as fascinating as it is popular. And it’s very popular. This is for very good reason, as the White Hennessy is a Cognac that can be enjoyed in so many ways. Light and round, definitely not aggressive, it combines deliciously fresh aromas with a young, simple, clean taste. This makes Henny White the perfect Cognac to drink neat, over ice, in a cocktail, or with your favorite mixer.
This delicate Cognac is, so we’re told by a member of Hennessy’s esteemed tasting committee, “A difficult Cognac to produce”. It’s also a challenge to purchase, as bottles tend to get snapped up fast. That’s why we’re limiting sales to two bottles per customer. Hennessy have definitely created an iconic drink with HPW. And it’s a trend that’s sure to continue as more and more people get turned onto the delights of HPW Cognac.
Everything about Henny Pure White screams contemporary class. We particularly like the funky bottle, one that's immediately recognizable, even from a distance. If you arrive at a party with a bottle of HPW in your hand, you're certainly going to be assured of a great welcome. Of course, the brand of Hennessy is famous the world over, but for some reason this White Henny has become the darling of many Cognac lovers in the US.
Hennessy Pure White is a Cognac that's generally sold only in the Caribbean, and, of course, in Cognac, France. Many people get to taste it when on vacation–perhaps in Barbados or the Bahamas–and then try to buy it from their local liquor store on their return home.
Many people wonder, due to the difficulty of getting hold of a bottle, we often get contacted by fans who say: White Hennessy is really hard to find near me, and where can I buy it? Unfortunately, we do not sell this item.
Be sure to find out more about the Cognac that's now virtually an urban legend in our blog article, Hennessy Pure White AKA "Pure White" Bottle Review.
I can see the appeal
This was provided to me as a sample. This is a blend of all 6 cru’s, and according to a member of Hennessy’s esteemed tasting committee, “A difficult Cognac to produce”. Very light, clean fresh fruit on the nose, with some apple. Not aggressive or off-putting for its age. As it opens more,...
It was Free for me!
My General Manager received it as a gift from one of our drivers, he gave it to me months later as it was just sitting in his office. I googled it and said, are you sure you want to give this to me? He said yes why, well it is expensive. He said, well you can have it. CHILD!!!! I am a gin drinker,...
Outstanding Customer Service
After my return from a Mexican cruise, I was at a lost as to how to get the bottle to my boyfriend in Maryland. I decided to drink the bottle myself and order him a bottle through Cognac Experts. They were very communicative and when the box was stolen from my boyfriend's front door right before...
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.
