THE FUTURE OF MASTERY
Hennessy V.S.O.P. Privilège commemorates its anniversary. 200 years of mastery and savoir-faire shaped by generations of talents. To pay tribute to our glorious past, we decided to celebrate the future.
We invited an incredibly diverse group of thought leaders and makers to share their visions on crafting the future.
Cognac became the epicenter of future-thinking.
For centuries, Hennessy’s Tasting Committee blended the finest cognac from our eaux-de-vie inventory, crafting each year harmony from complexity. Our goal is to prepare for the next 200 years, crafting the next genrations of Mastery.
OPENING NEW HORIZONS
We invited in Cognac the masters of tomorrow—from a plasma physicist to a chef, a digital artist to a former astronaut. Hosting this unique assembly, Hennessy’s 8th Master Blender Renaud Fillioux de Gironde launched the discussion by asking simply, “Can we push the boundary of quality?”
CRAFTING THE FUTURE
The guests were invited for a 3-day retreat to discuss and dive into the major questions: How do we adapt to the changing environment? How will the definition of craftsmanship shift in the age of artificial intelligence?
And as we move forward ethically and sustainably, how do we create inclusive spaces? As this unusual anniversary party was over, change was still on everyone’s mind.
