Maluma toured the Hennessy Maison in Cognac, France, and learned about the savoir-faire required to craft Hennessy. While there, he met with Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, the eighth generation Master Blender, and Maurice Hennessy, eighth generation member of the Hennessy family.

“Hennessy and I share several important values: a relentless dedication to our crafts, recognizing where we came from to help inform where we are going, as well as love and appreciation for family,” – Maluma.
