An energetic offering from a famed Cognac house gets a brand new outfit with this limited-edition special. Hennessy needs no introduction in the world of Cognac, but when it’s by way of an incredible decanter design by artist FAITH XLVII, it sure doesn’t hurt. With sweeping golden illustrations and timeless motifs, the Cognac’s captivating character can be fully appreciated.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of their VS limited-edition Cognac, Hennessy has enlisted the help of acclaimed South African artist FAITH XLVII. Mastering everything from painting to calligraphy to gold leaf detailing, her design that wraps around Hennessy VS Limited Edition Cognac is at once dynamic and classically alluring. Symbols of both the sun and time feature prominently in the artwork, immediately conjuring similarities with the process of cognac production– the natural elements that the eaux-de-vie rely on, the many years spent waiting for them to age to perfection… and these parallels were not lost on her: “Distilling and assembling eaux-de-vie is like my process… it’s about taking basic elements and transforming them into something extraordinary.”
