Hennessy Paradis Impérial kicked off the inaugural Sip and Sail experience with press that we were able to attend hosted by Iain Percy, a double Olympic champion, America’s Cup professional, and Great Britain’s most successful Star Class sailor of all time.

In the sport of sailing, according to Percy, “the ‘point of elegance’ centers on understanding how to harness the power of the wind and wave to allow the boat to elegantly flow along the right path.”

The tasting notes of Hennessy Paradis Impérial are of jasmine, orange blossom, spring essence, and a subtle taste of smokiness.
