Description

Hennessy VSOP Privilege Collection 5 Cognac

The gilded vessel that holds the long-standing legacy of the Hennessy V.S.O.P is the latest creation from reputable graphic designer Peter Saville. The design is a reflection of the research Saville has conducted on the natural science and genome of the grapevine, which stands for the essence and integrity of the cognac. The color-coding technique that Saville is known for incorporates both the designer’s modern abstraction and Hennessy’s revered heritage. Ultimately resulting in a ‘pattern of life’ design that makes any owner of this limited edition Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege Collection 5 resemble the regality of King Midas himself.

The VSOP itself is produced using 100% Ugni Blanc grapes, it's a perfect harmony between the quality eaux-de-vie and the expertise of Hennessy master blenders. The maturation in French oak barrels creates a secondary scent of toasted notes. When sipping this classic Cognac, strength and smoothness converge in a beautifully orchestrated blend of flavors, followed by a softer note of freshly pressed grapes before a lengthy finish. A true embodiment of the brilliance that the Hennessy house offers.

Presentation of the bottle

The limited-edition bottle is coated in matte gold, which upon closer inspection of the magnificent creation. The opulent color flows in a gradient formation from the fairest tone to the deepest amber. The center where the multifarious hues intermingle with the metallic shade is the signifying backdrop of the Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege Collection 5. Finished in a matching presentation box, it’s a fine display down to the final detail.

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.
