For the first time since Hennessy began its urban art-inspired limited edition series, the artist JonOne created a standalone masterpiece to express his vision of Hennessy. The creation of the design itself mirrors the elaborate process of cognac.
Colors, symbols and freestyle brushstrokes combine with different graphic techniques to reveal a fresh artistic vision of Hennessy codes: 1765, the year Hennessy was founded; the grape vines, representing the source of Cognac’s prized eaux-de-vie; the diamond quilted pattern, which envelops the cork on each bottle; and the 3 stars, evocative of the early days of Hennessy Very Special’s quality classification.
The result is a final artwork that perfectly blends the styles of both artist and Maison.
Today Hennessy Privilege has become established as the world's favorite VSOP Cognac, and is recognised for its harmonious and well-structured blend. On the nose, the first fragrances perceived are soft spices such as vanilla, clove and cinnamon. Then delicate toasted notes follow, arising from the maturation in oakbarrels.On the palate, the natural balance of strength and smoothness creates a harmonious blend in which maturity combines with vigor. The structure is softened by a suggestion of fresh grape character.
Courvoisier proudly boast their Cognac as that of Napoleon. It all started when Napoleon took hundreds of bottles of Courvoisier Cognac for his years of exile. Napoleon told Emmanuel Courvoisier that whilst he could be given the Hennessy or the Cristal, or indeed the Remy, it was the Courvoisier he really wanted.
