Discover the meaning of these codes which make Hennessy V.S.O.P. the legend it is, and appreciate their stories.
The Codes of Hennessy V.S.O.P.
The Grapes – The grapes are the symbol of the vineyards. They refer to the grandeur of the House of Hennessy and the nobility of the product. They also refer to the ancestral savoir-faire, to the elaborate craftsmanship, and to the extreme care that is conferred to the creation of a high-quality product.
The “Bras Arme” – The emblematic “bras armé” reflects the long history of Hennessy. It has been part of the Hennessy seal for more than 2 centuries. Now engraved in the glass, it emphasizes the constant search of quality. This symbol of ambition adds more “substance” to the charisma by setting the spirit of conquest.
“1817” – 1817 is the date when the legend of Hennessy V.S.O.P began. On October 7th, 1817, the future King George IV of England asked the House of Hennessy to supply him with a special cognac. A blending that is described in the records with the words “Very Superior Old Pale”.
The Copper Colour – The new colours of this collector are meant to pay tribute to the heritage of Hennessy V.S.O.P. They add more elegance and style to the carafe. The copper colour is a reminder of the pot stills. This deep tint evokes centuries of distillation. As for the startling carbon-grey colour, it holds two dimensions.
The New Silhouette – Today’s new silhouette, a reinterpretation of the original iconic V.S.O.P bottle from 1954, has been recently designed by the automobile designer Chris Bangle. First, he slightly accentuated the curves on the sides of the carafe, reinforcing its silhouette’s dynamics, then he lengthened its neck and straightened its shoulders, stretching it vertically.
The Hennessy V.S.O.P. Kyrios will be available in Malaysia from 28th January onwards, exclusively at selected Jusco and Chinese restaurants nationwide; and will debut in all major clubs and entertainment outlets this March.
