Recognised as one of the finest French cognacs in the world — if not the finest — Hennessy has long been enjoyed in its purest form: straight. But over the years, it’s also been used to add some refined richness to our favourite tipples. Now, with over 141 original recipes to date, there’s no better time to start sipping on cognac-based cocktails. What’s more, you can try five new Hennessy V.S.O.P sunset cocktails which will be available at numerous bars in Hong Kong this summer.
To celebrate this launch, an ‘Owning the Sunset’ party was thrown on Tuesday, 16 July at The Villa with a cool crowd of VIP guests — including Hong Kong Cantopop singers Vincy Chan and Anson Poon — present to enjoy live performances including a flame thrower, a fun ball-pit bathtub and swing set, as well as all five cocktails to sample until the sun went down. See photos from the exclusive event in our slideshow below.
The twilight-hued cocktails include Hennessy Sunset Lime, Hennessy Sunset Tea Ceremony, Hennessy Sunset Lychee Fizz and Game Changer, which will be available at W Hotel, Epure, FoFo By El Willy and more starting in August. Meanwhile, the new Paint the Sky cocktail by Diageo World Class Competition 2019 HK & Macau Bartender of the Year, Shelley Tai, will be available exclusively at Quinary from 1–31 August.
