Cognac is made exclusively from grapes. It comes from a clearly defined region of France, around the town of Cognac. Its outstanding environment is unique in the world. With its chalky, stony soil and sunny temperate climate the region is perfect for vine growing.
The traditional vineyard of the cognac region is divided into six growing areas (crus in French), each with its different characteristics. To ensure the exceptional quality of its cognacs, Hennessy uses only eaux-de-vie from the first four crus, those which have the best topsoil and very chalky subsoil.
The grape variety covering most of the vineyard for the production of cognac is called Ugni Blanc which produces a fruity, light white wine ideal for distillation.
