It’s the first Cognac special edition in 2011. It certainly has become a tradition for Cognac houses to launch special editions from time to time.
Hennessy actually takes this really seriously and launches a XO limited edition every year, at the beginning of the new year – this has been going on since 2007.
The Hennessy XO Exclusive Collection, called Odyssey is the 4th Odyssey edition, somehow the industry and consumers even expect Hennessy to launch it every year.
The fourth edition of the series is about to be released, this year’s artist: Designer Arik Levy. The bottle design presents some references to cubic forms.
Who is Arik Levy? The 1963-born man stated “design is an uncontrolled muscle”. He is designer, technician, artist, photographer, filmmaker, a rather multi-disciplinary artist and designer. His works are shown worlwide in galleries and museums – best known for his furniture design.
Levy also knows that “the world is about people, not tables and chairs.” And one could add, “not bottles”…
By the way: It’s not the average Hennessy XO eaux-de-vie combination, just in a different bottle – no. This blend is a special one, created for the Odyssey series.
