French designer Inga Sempe has been commissioned to design a new bottle and package for the ultra luxury cognac Richard Hennessy. The price is set to £ 2500 and it surely embodies all the characteristics of rarity.

Richard Hennessy is the fruit of the unique blending of more than 100 exceptional eaux-de-vie. The oldest of these are extremely rare and date back to the early 19th century. Richard Hennessy is a cognac in which nothing dominates but everything is present and perfectly balanced.

Each carafe is unique, numbered and facetted. The bottle’s striking form is made in pure, hand-blown crystal by the most skilled glassblowers at Baccarat.

Made from the finest ash, the gift box requires thirty hours of craftmanship and is covered with 14 layers of lacquer.
