Hennessy V.S.O.P Lunar New Year Limited Edition By Liu Wei Cognac

In celebration of the Lunar New Year 2021, Hennessy has collaborated with internationally recognised artist Liu Wei, to release a limited edition bottle of Hennessy VSOP. A classic in its own right, Liu Wei has spruced up the original bottle design with a colorful palette inspired by Spring. The colors are symbolic of the artist and reflect Liu Wei’s trademark artistic style. An ode to Cognac and the iconic work of Hennessy’s master blender, the bottle work displays the skilful fusing together of the colors red and purple, in the same way that the blender intertwines together the different blends of eaux-de-vie.

As the largest Cognac producer in the world, Hennessy dominates the Cognac region and spreads over the four grand cru regions including; Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois. With the largest reserve of eaux-de-vie worldwide, the choice of aromas means that this Cognac house has the ability to create some of the most exquisite and complex Cognac blends the industry has to offer. Matured in oak casks following double distillation in copper stills, the refined quality and pioneering know-how are what gave the House of Hennessy the world-class legacy that it owns today.

Presentation of the bottle

The color scheme of this limited edition bottle by Liu Wei displays the vibrancy of Spring as well as the infinite possibility of growth that arrives with the season. A design that, like Spring, offers a breath of fresh air to the world of Cognac whereby design work tends to be kept classic and traditional. The limited edition bottle is in keeping with the artist's signature style, as the print and colors resemble some of Liu Wei’s other artwork too. The perfect gift, that is sure to brighten up the day of a Cognac enthusiast.

How to enjoy

The house of Hennessy recommends use of VSOP as the base of many of the classic cocktail recipes. Replace your the spirit of your favorite cocktail with Hennessy VSOP privilege of try mixing up a Manhattan Cocktail for example.

About Hennessy Cognac

You may think, that with Hennessy’s ability to innovate and push boundaries, they are a thoroughly ‘modern’ Cognac brand. This is a large part of their immense success and influence. The very French brand based in the Charente region, in fact, dates all the way back to 1765 - to Ireland - but have managed to shapeshift enough times to remain more relevant than ever before - with current Master Blender Renaud Fillioux. Their range of uber-trendy products is ever expanding, and their marketing campaigns all the more captivating. There is no doubt that ‘Henny’ culture is alive and kicking: both Cognac and a fifth of Hennessy are mentioned in what seems like hundreds of songs.
