    Hennessy X.O NBA Limited Edition

    Fans around the world will be able to toast with the new exclusive Hennessy X.O Limited Edition bottle, specially designed to commemorate the partnership between Hennessy and the NBA.

    In 1870, Maurice Hennessy, a 4th-generation member of the Hennessy family, asked the Master Blender Emile Fillioux, a descendant of the Hennessy Master Blender Jean Fillioux, to create a special cognac for his family and friends, using long-aged eaux-de-vie to perfect the blend. They called it “X.O” for “Extra Old”, the original, and a legend was born. Hennessy X.O attained international renown and contributed to the development of the category XO which is a gauge of uncompromising quality. Thanks to 150 years of meticulous know-how, Hennessy X.O remains as inspiring today as it was the day Hennessy first shared it with his inner circle. The powerful and balanced structure of Hennessy X.O carries the promise of an extremely long finish, with each drop an invitation to embark on a journey of the senses through seven tasting notes.

Aged for between three and twelve years, the broad spectrum of eaux-de-vie that make up Hennessy Classivm bring a range of contrasting delights to this innovative style, but they ultimately come together in perfect harmony.

ABOUT THE NBA

A distinguished observation about great partners is that they are always, in some way, an extended arm of the surroundings that they represent. Our partnership with the NBA gives us an intimate look into the lives of different personalities, ahead of their times in several respects – great athletes, with great stories, that we are giving you a front-row seat to observe and to enjoy.

For Hennessy, community is a way of living. Bringing people together and achieving the unachievable is deeply embedded in our DNA, something that we share with the NBA. And with you – our Hennessy fans – an endless source of inspiration, constantly driving us to push the game forward.
