Eye: As displayed on the outer contents, the inner eye offers warm rouge tones with depths of mahogany.

Nose: Beautifully balanced aroma of fresh vanilla, cinnamon and toasty notes that harmonize with seamless perfection.

Palate: Balanced, yet highly characterful. A harmonious balance of smoothness and strength, the structure is softened by a fresh burst of grapes. A long finish.

Description

Hennessy VSOP Privilege Limited Edition by Refik Anadol Cognac

Hennessy teams with the internationally acclaimed artist and director Refik Anadol to reveal the emotion behind the Hennessy V.S.O.P. Designed by a media artist, director and pioneer in the aesthetics of data and machine intelligence, Anadol’s work locates creativity at the intersection of humans and machines. Painting with a thinking brush, radical visualizations of digitized memories is evident in the bottle’s futuristic, yet warm display. Based on his ethos of “caring about the uniqueness and craftsmanship” Anadol’s representation of a true Hennessy classic boasts a modern elegance, with the utmost respect for its renowned heritage.

The Hennessy V.S.O.P blend is an expression of eight generations of Master Blenders' know-how. To perpetuate the legacy of the original Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège, Hennessy Master Blenders constantly seek to create a completely harmonious blend. Displaying that with definitive expression, the V.S.O.P is beautifully balanced and harmonized with seamless perfection. Based on a selection of firmly structured eaux-de-vie, aged largely in partially used barrels in order to take on subtle levels of oak tannins, a highly characterful, yet complimentary cognac is perfectly produced.

Presentation of the bottle

Exceptionally, the power of balance appears in a harmonious and poetic surface design, Anadol uses 3D data mapping, to interpret and transcribe the Tasting Committee’s emotions into the color, shapes, reliefs. Transcribing these textures onto the 2021 Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Limited Edition means that what was once an invisible sensory experience has suddenly become tangible. Data becomes art in a visual metaphor for a blend. Like the cognac itself, the sense of Heritage and the artwork is designed to be appreciated on an individual, sensorial level. Offering a deep rouge with silk textures and melodic lines the true essence of this exceptional Cognac is not only seen but felt by the bottle alone.

How to enjoy

Of course, Hennessy VSOP Privilege can be enjoyed neat, but equally, it is commonly used by mixologists across the world in both classic and complex, contemporary recipes thanks to its versatility and established presence on the market.

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.
