Description

Hennessy XO Exclusive Collection 9 (IX) 2016 by Tom Dixon Cognac

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. A spectacular showcase, the Hennessy X.O Exclusive Collection 9 is certainly worth the wait. For the special edition, the star designer was inspired by the magical qualities of crystal, diamonds, and precious stones. It’s a showcase that draws you into tasting its contents with ease.

Embodying the finest traditions of the house, the XO was originally crafted in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy using very old eaux-de-vie. It is blended with more than 100 selections specially picked from the four premier growing areas. Some of the eaux-de-vie used in the blend has been aging in the Hennessy warehouses since the early part of this century. Back when it first came on the scene, it was reserved exclusively for family and friends, but today it is a much-loved favorite offering from the house. Now, the final edition of the exclusive collection is up for grabs and it's one not to miss out on.

Presentation of the bottle

Designer Tom Dixon has expertly captured the essence of the XO with this display. He chose a sparkling silver to create a relief-like surface for the bottle, to reproduce the sensation of these valuable minerals. The textures entice you in for a taste and the striking gold and black are a wonderful nod to the remarkable heritage of the Hennessy house. Finished with a presentation box to match, it’s one that every collector will inevitably appreciate.

How to enjoy

As an XO, this is a versatile piece that can be enjoyed in many ways. Try it on its own to savor the classic XO essence, or add ice for an extra punch.

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.
