Hennessy Shepard Farey VS Cognac

Hennessy Shepard Farey VS Cognac is one of Hennessey’s many special edition bottle designs for the brand’s iconic VS blend with more than 40 different eaux-de-vie aged up to 8 years. This time the collaboration is with the artist - Shepard Fairey. A legend of both art and pop culture, Fairey commands a distinctive aesthetic that has led to some of the world’s most recognizable and provocative artworks and images.

For this Hennessy V.S Limited Edition bottle, the artist drew inspiration from his own legacy as well as from Hennessy’s. Shepard Fairey has spent his career producing statement-making art that reflects how he sees the world and the parts of it that inspires him personally.

Presentation of the bottle

Upon designing the special edition bottle, Shepard Fairey visited the ancestral home of Hennessy in Cognac, France to source inspiration for his artistic design. The final product reveals unique lines and shapes, which are centred around a floral motif and striking bold colors, emblematic of the artist’s globally acclaimed artwork.

“When I look at the history of Hennessy and how the eaux-de-vie are saved for years and built upon, I see a connection to the way I work as an artist. I’ve developed, experimented, come up with techniques that I’ve then pushed and pushed and refined.” - Shepherd Fairey

Each bottle is individually numbered and features Fairey’s signature style, making it a truly one of a kind collector's item that is sure to spruce your spirit’s collection.

How to enjoy

Hennessy VS Cognac can be drunk both in pure form and over ice and is perfect for mixing in fresh and creative cocktails. Simply swap out the base spirit of your favorite cocktail with Hennessy VS for a modern twist on the classics.

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.
