Hennessy's Master Blender
April 11, 2017
by Carl De Keyzer
Carl de Keyzer has documented the key moments in the process of acquiring a Master Blender’s savoir-faire. The photographer took an off-the-wall perspective and offers a glimpse of a hallowed ritual for eight generations. His photographs capture the emblematic and symbolic places in the Maison Hennessy, from vineyard to cellar and Master Blender’s office to the Tasting Committee, but also show us the complicity and exchange of knowledge between the two men, from one Master Blender to the other.

Eight black and white photographs have been selected and used for internal and external communications.
