Here comes a special edtion by the cognac house of Hennessy: Hennessy Privé Special Edition.

Hennessy Privé is a reference to Art Deco
The packaging of this cognac reminds us of Habitat meets Louis Vuitton. Hennessy Privé comes in an Art Deco croco box.
An individual of wealth and authority, James Hennessy was equally a generous man who enjoyed inviting members of the intelligentsia to his home in Cognac where he would initiate them in the very finest cognacs.
In 1920, James Hennessy had a “very private” cognac specially blended to honour his friends among the elites of the day. He requested the Hennessy Master Blender Alfred Fillioux to create a cognac that would be both structured and elegant, to reflect the values of Art Deco.
A century later, Hennessy has revived this tradition. Alfred Fillioux’s descendant, Yann Fillioux, has composed Hennessy Privé, a fine tribute to James Hennessy and an enduring cognac for the elite of the twenty-first century.
To create Hennessy Privé, the Master Blender has selected remarkable old “eaux-de-vie” which he has aged in young oak casks, to reinforce their strength.
The result is an emblematic cognac of great distinction for true connoisseurs. A masterpiece of balance: round and refined, structured and velvety with delicate notes of crystallized fruit. To appreciate its full richness Hennessy Privé should be drunk neat.
With its elegant decanter, presented in an Art Deco crocodile leather style gift box, Hennessy Privé is an elite cognac for the most discerning palates.
