A former Brandy Brand Champion, Constellation Brands-owned Paul Masson Grande Amber is a consistent performer in the category stakes. Made in the Napa Valley for more than 100 years, the brand takes pride in its tradition yet doesn’t rest on its laurels, releasing a number of flavoured variants in recent years including a red berry expression in 2015. Will Constellation’s focus on Paul Masson slip as it acquires and develops other brown spirits brands? We hope the company can balance the needs of a heritage brandy alongside its appetite for trendier craft whiskey names.

    Where is Hennessy in this list?

    • Kristiane Sherry says:

      Hi Dawn,
      As noted in the Martell entry on the 7th page, Hennessy, as part of a privately owned enterprise, declines to disclose its volume sales.

  2. JJF says:

    Hennessy is not privately owned but is part of the public company LVMH.

  3. i have purchased enough hennessy, i could probably have 1/3 of its stock. love that stuff, but i think i have been getting screwed on the price. love it! i have, in the last year—except for 1 month—switched over to the french stuff—i think it is french! nevertheless, a bit disappointing news regarding hennessy. my uncle will miss his hennessy-cream drops, as we play bridge, then poker. oh, well!
