James Hennessy is the first travel-retail exclusive Hennessy expression since the release of Hennessy Privé in 2009. This new permanent addition to the range - a 40% abv Cognac presented in a 1-litre crystal decanter - is inspired by James Hennessy, the eldest son of house founder Richard Hennessy. Born in 1765, James Hennessy was instrumental in introducing Hennessy to new export markets such as Russia and the US.

Priced at EUR140, James Hennessy has been released in the Global Travel Retail channel to fill a gap in the existing range between Hennessy VSOP, which is typically priced at EUR50 to EUR60 (US$56 to $67), and Hennessy XO at around EUR200 ($224).
