VSOP Cognac exists thanks to King George IV, who made a request of the House of Hennessy for a ‘Very superior old pale’ – this soon became the standard across cognac houses.

While the youngest eaux-de-vie in the blend needs to be at least four years old, many superior VSOP blends will include older eaux-de-vie in the blend. It is a Master Blender’s job to find a harmonious blend.
