in the USA. I purchased mine (current model HHULB) about June this
it says 'Made in China'. How old is yours? Admittedly I did buy mine
through an eabay store, but nevertheless it has all the registered
trade marks attached to it. It also came with printed material with
the Hennessy contact information on it. I must say, I was surprised to
see the 'Made in China' tag on it as I too, was of the understanding
that it was made in the USA.
