Hennessy JonOne Deluxe Edition Gift Set
A unique limited edition gift set boasting an extra large, 1,5l bottle of Hennessy's flagship VS Cognac. A creation of over 40 different eaux-de-vie offers an enticing taste with a young and vibrant flair. Displaying this depth from first glance, the bottle’s display of the colors signify the layering of the tastes and aromas used by Hennessy's cellar master in the making of their blends. JonOne is a Dominican Republic born street artist who now commits his works of art to the canvas as well. Hennessy JonOne Deluxe Edition Gift Set is an extension of the latest Limited Edition by Cognac Hennessy in 2017. Both an excellent display and palate that offers a unique edge.
To create the eaux-de-vie for Hennessy’s signature VS, the finest Ugni Blanc grapes are selected, fermented and distilled twice in copper pot stills, known locally as alembic charentais. While some producers choose to distil their spirit with grape skins and other types of sediment, Hennessy removes this to create a lighter and more delicate Cognac. After distillation, only the best eaux-de-vie will be selected during tasting sessions held by a select committee of experts, with the final blend crafted by Hennessy’s eighth-generation master blender, Renaud Fillioux de Gironde.
Maison Hennessy uses casks of French Limousin oak to age their VS Cognac, imparting a robust, nutty note to complement the light and fruity grape characteristics. Before they even get to touch the spirit, the wood for the casks has been left outside for several years, exposing it to the changing seasons to reduce bitter flavors and develop a natural vanilla sweetness.
Presentation of the bottle
Designed to match its vibrant essence, this special gift set is a display of colorful paint. The unique limited edition features an extra large, 150cl bottle, a sketch notebook, and jigger. The design has been created in collaboration with Hennessy, and both the bottle and the packaging are adorned with the bright primary colors JonOne has used for this unique design. An unmissable display for a memorable Cognac experience.
How to enjoy
This limited edition bottle and packaging contains the regular Hennessy VS–a fresh, vibrant Cognac that can be enjoyed neat, over ice, with a mixer, or as a component of a cocktail.
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.
