京都市は西京区のお宅にてヘネシーナポレオン樽型陶器ボトルを買い取らせていただきました。

日本ではカミュ、レミーマルタン、クルボアジェ、マーテルと共にコニャック5大メーカーとしてその名を連ねているヘネシーの珍しい樽型ボトル700mlです。

こちらの樽型ボトルはフランスの陶磁器の街リモージュにあるベルナドー社によってコニャック貯蔵用の樫樽を模してヘネシーのために作ったもので、ボトルの栓も実際に使われている栓を模して作られているという細部にまでこだわりがつまった価値ある逸品です。

We visited Nishikyō-ku of Kyoto City and purchased a Hennessy Napoleon Limoges Barrel.

Profound French manufacturer Bernardaud produced this Limoges barrel in the early 1980’s.

Hennessy was founded in 1765 by Irishman Richard Hennessy, Captain in the French Army. It took Hennessy just a few years to dominate the market and actually they have never lost their leading position since. Hennessy was the first producer which came with a Extra Old (XO) and they also invented the star-ranking system. In 1971 Hennessy merched with Moët et Chandon forming Moët-Hennessy. After their 1987 merger with Louis Vuton the newly formed company LVMH became one of the largest conglomerates in luxury products. One year later, in 1988, Bernard Arnault purchased a share of LVMH and eventually became the new owner of Hennessy, still world’s largest producer of Cognac.
