Hennessy’s famous V.S Cognac delivered ina special, limted edition decanter by South African artist Faith XLVII.
Hennessy is THE giant in the world of Cognac. Jas Hennessy & Co. produces more than fifty million bottles of Cognac each year — more than 40% of the entire market. Interestingly, this most famous French company located in Cognac, France, was founded by Irishman Richard Hennessy in 1765. The modern company produces nearly two dozen core Spirits and many more collectors editions and limited releases as a subsidiary of Moët Hennessy, which in turn is owned in partnership by Diageo and LVMH.
Over the last few years, Hennessy has started a tradition of partnering with artists to produce limited collector’s editions of their famous V.S Cognac. Hennessy V.S Faith XLVII is classic Hennessy blend of up to forty Eau de Vie from local farms in the Cognac region aged in new European oak for a minimum of two years. It is bottled is a special decanter designed by noted South African street and studio artist Faith XLVII (Faith 47). The custom labeling reflects elements of her hybrid aesthetic.
Cognac’s letter grading system was created by Maurice Hennessy in 1865, so they take it very seriously. The V.S signifies that the youngest Spirit in this blend has been aged a minimum of two years.
