Futura x Hennessy VS Cognac
A limited-edition of the Hennessy VS Collector’s Edition range, this is a wonderfully modern take on a classic Cognac. Teaming up with a true urban legend, the unique design is a product of pioneering graffiti artist and renowned illustrator, Futura. With an eye-catching flair, it brings a timeless piece into the present with ease. Containing the same elements as the original Hennessy VS, it boasts a blend of around 40 different "eaux-de-vie". Each selected for their vivacity and from the best growing areas of the Cognac region, it is a true product of brilliance. Full-bodied, with pronounced aromas and rich flavors, its contents are as impressive as this display paints it to be.
Crafted by a Cognac house with a rich sense of history, dating back 1765, its creations are as relevant today as they were decades ago. Priding itself on its relevance, innovation is at the heart of the Hennessy name. Showcasing that with ease, the futuristic flair of this bottle places this house ahead of the trend. Continuing to re-invent its classics, it is a house that will never be forgotten.
Presentation of the bottle
Combining the art of blending with the blending of art, this vibrant display beautifully conveys the youth of the VS within it. It features Futura's signature helix visuals in bright colourways on the front of the bottle and on the cap. Splashes of unique patterns immediately capture the eye and make this a bottle you will want to display for all to appreciate.
How to enjoy
Enjoy Hennessy VS on its own in a tulip glass, or over ice. House of Hennessy ambassador Marc Boissonet recommends keeping it simple by adding bubbles: “A nice burgundy glass with a solid ice cube and a dash of sparkling water… that’s a way to enjoy it.” Hennessy VS is also the perfect base for classic and modern cocktails: try it in a Sidecar, or make a twist on the Old Fashioned with a dash of ginger syrup and bitters.
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.
