Hi Serge,

Here are my suggestions. I've tried to change as little as possible.

Hennessy, the leader of the cognac industry, is one of the oldest companies in the world. It was set up by a young Irish immigrant, Richard Hennessy, in 1775. He had settled down in Charente after he left the army of Louis XV to engage in the manufacturing of cognac.

Hennessy was controlled by descendants of the founder for eight generations. For many years, Hennessy co-operated with Martel, another well-know company. They combined and improved the technology of cognac manufacturing. They also developed new brands of cognac, creating a first-class product which made them very rich.

Their cognacs quickly conquered the entire world. Louis XVI was delighted with them in 1784. By 1859 this cognac had also conquered India and China. The English queen, Victoria, who was known for the severity of her temper, used to love them.
I didn't know that!

In 1860, Maurice Hennessy hit upon the idea of marking the degree of strength (is this what you mean?) of their cognacs by the number of stars shown on the label. In five years, this marking was widely used in the manufacturing of cognac. In 1860, Maurice Hennessy was developing the recipiency (I don't know what you mean here?) technology of cognacs with the brand 'X.O.' Based on this technology, they have produced cognac up to the present day. Another Maurice Hennessy, in 1944, was the founder of the National Interprofessional Bureau of Cognac.

In 1971, Hennessy united with the Moet and Chandon group, which was making champagne, and thus they organized a new company - “Moet-Hennessy”. In 1987, Louis Vuitton joined the company.

Now, the LVMH company possesses numerous wine, champagne and cognac brands, and has full independence. It owns 620 hectares of vineyards. At the head of the concern is Gill Hennessy, an eighth-generation descendant of the family.


Best wishes, Clive

I am grateful to you for your help and thank you for giving me so much of your time!

Yes. That's right.

In 1860, Maurice Hennessy was developing the recipiency (I don't know what you mean here?) technology of cognacs with the brand 'X.O.'
I am not sure that it's right - 'the recipiency technology', but I mean ...ermm ... e.g. 'method of produce' or 'manufacturing process'.
