Drinks: Hennessy first new spirit in nearly 50 years


Into the elegant and refined Hennessy repertoire comes Hennessy Black , a lively and youthful addition. It's the first new spirit from the great house in almost 50 years.

Just know that times have changed.

A smooth and slightly floral union of more than 40 eaux de vie, Hennessy Black works on its own or as the main ingredient in a cocktail.

The eaux de vie in this spirit range from the pale to the gilded. You'll detect a bit of citrus in the finished product. After a sip or two, you're no longer thinking about tweeds and fireplaces.

Expect the handsomely bottled Black on local shelves within a month, priced at about $40. And remember that this is Hennessy's party beverage.
