Product Information

The Hennessy qualities require different glass shapes according to their age each designed to reveal a particular set of characteristics. The youthful character of their standard quality V.S.O.P. needed to be matched by a glass that could maximise its fruit, integrating acidity and alcoholic strength into a harmonious whole. With this in mind, our ‘brandy workshop’ came up with the small, tulip-shaped Riedel Sommelier Cognac VSOP glass that was able to satisfy the rigorous specifications of the master blender. Dishwasher Safe.

The Sommelier Range

Sommeliers – the world’s first grape varietal specific wine glass collection and a design revolution created by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation) who perfected glass design to its essence: bowl, stem and base. Thin-blown and unadorned, it adheres to the Bauhaus design principle of form follows function. Claus J. Riedel worked with experienced tasters and discovered that wine enjoyed from specifically designed glasses showed more depth and better balance than when served in generic glasses. In 1973 the Sommeliers collection achieved worldwide recognition. The glass collection covers 29 different shapes for wines, champagne and spirits.
