Riedel Vinum Cognac Hennessy Set of 2 (P/N 6416/71).

Diverging from the traditional balloon-shaped Cognac glass, Riedel has worked with wine experts to develop these fluted stems. The crystal is formed to capture, condense, and release the unique undertones of Cognac and Hennessy.

  • 24 percent lead crystal is fire-polished for a lovely finish.
  • The elongated bowl leaves less surface area for evaporation, coaxing a more delicate aroma from the strong, distilled spirit.
  • Delicate yet stable, each cognac glass stands 7-1/4 inches tall and holds 6.8 oz.

Recommended for: Armagnac (mature), Armagnac (young), Brandy, Calvados, Cognac V.S.O.P., Cognac XO, Rum, V.S.O.P. Cognac, XO Cognac

Why choose this set over similar glasses?

  • These tulip flutes differ in shape from the traditional "balloon-bowl" cognac snifters, offering an alternative preferred by serious aficionados.
  • The gently out-turned rim sends spirits to the sweet-sensing tip of the tongue.
  • Riedel 24 percent lead crystal is optimized at the molecular level for exceptional balance and clarity.




This special stem features a fluted shape, offering a small evaporating surface, which helps to balance the aroma and taste while tempering the alcohol and emphasizing the bouquet.



  • Made by Riedel world-renowned glassmakers
  • Machine-made 24% lead crystal
  • Perfect for bridal or gift-giving
  • Dishwasher safe but washing by hand recommended

Great Value

by

These glasses have a stunning shape to the bowl and a delicate stem that feels great to hold. They are just the right size for a good cognac in the evening, and do not take up too much space in the cupboard. IWA sent them right away, great company.

Great tasting glasses.

I have a friend who makes artisan whiskey and cognac, and these glasses are great for his tastings. I had to go out and buy some after we used his. Now every time he gives me a bottle to try I break these glasses out!
