VSOP: Aged 4 Years + Cocktails & On Ice & Cooking

VSOP Cognac stands for "Very Superior Old Pale" Cognac, which is interesting considering that it comes from France. The origin of the abbreviation VSOP dates back to a Cognac order from the British Royal Court. In 1817, King George IV asked the House of Hennessy for a "Very Superior Old Pale", which would become a benchmark for all Cognac houses from then on.

Some use fullstops after the letters, V.S.O.P., which is nothing else than a stylistic preference. Old and pale refers to a Cognac mature in age but not colored or sweetened for that special aroma, one of superior quality. This age designation is also labelled "Very Superior Special Pale", "Very Old", or simply "Réserve" or "Vieux", and indicates that the youngest eau-de-vie in the blend is four years old. As in any other age category, this does not prevent the master blender from using much older eaux-de-vie in order to achieve the perfect harmony for the final Cognac blend.

The average age of a VSOP is often much older. The next age levels are XO Cognac and Napoleon Cognac. Learn more in our selection of educational Cognac articles.
