If you like someone very much (especially if it’s yourself), this holiday season consider gifting them the latest of Hennessy’s famed artist collaborations, the Felipe Pantone x Hennessy V.S.
The limited-edition Cognac release is the ninth in in the Hennessy artist series—previous installations featured works by Vhils, KAWS and Futura, among others.
It features the futuristic art of Pantone, an Argentinian-Spanish artist known for his Op-Art-influenced installations, graffiti and other designs featuring bold colours and geometrical patterns. The original artwork, entitled W-3 Dimensional Three Stars, was inspired by the historic advertising and packaging he found in the 250-year-old Cognac maison’s archives. Pantone calls it “Remixing the Present.”
But what about the liquid in this very colourful bottle? This Very Special Cognac is a blend of distinctly expressive eaux-de-vie, with aromas of fresh fruit and pecans on the nose and, on the palate, flavours of toasted almonds, apples and grapes, and a medium finish. It’s as ideal for sipping over ice as it is a base for elegant cocktails.
The limited Felipe Pantone x Hennessy V.S. is available at both private and government retailers in B.C. for a suggested price of $66.99.
