To mark the grand finale of Hennessy‘s 250-year anniversary marathon, the Cognac giant launches a special edition bottle of its Hennessy X.O Exclusive Collection by British designer, Tom Dixon: Hennessy X.O Exclusive Collection 9.
For the special edition, the star designer was inspired by the magical qualities of crystal, diamonds, and precious stones. He chose a sparkling silver to create a relief-like surface for the bottle, to reproduce the sensation of these valuable minerals.
"The Hennessy X.O carafe is a timeless subject that I wanted to deal with an original and modern," says Dixon
After a first edition coppery reflections in 2014, Tom Dixon has chosen to honor the silver color, creating an impression of infinite pixelation on a textured surface designed to reflect light. Its many facets shine and thus attract the eye like a diamond. Tom Dixon was inspired minerals and natural treasures of the earth to shape Hennessy X.O. The result reveals an unexpected harmony between light, materiality, form and finish, a true collector's item in itself.
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.
