Unlike most Hennessy cognacs, the Hennessy Master Blender’s Selection is a true single batch: it is blended only once and is never replicated. It is fruity, mildly sweet, and silky on the palate — a true must-have this holiday season.

Bonus: Chandon California Harvest Under the Stars Limited Edition – $31.70 (Ontario)

We know what you’re thinking – Chandon? For under $40? This is a bonus because it’s not bougie in price but in name, which is literally the best-case scenario when buying high-end bubbly.

The Chandon California Brut is your go-to bubbly that has been wrapped in its finest coat for the holiday season. Created using the same three noble grape varieties used in champagne, Chandon California Brut is deliciously crisp and will be the perfect gift to offer.
