To celebrate the Year of the Dragon, Hennessy's iconic X.O cognac comes dressed in gold.


    Ever true to its heritage, Hennessy V.S.O.P once again revolutionizes the culture of luxury spirits by breaking down the boundaries between past, present, and future. 

    To celebrate the Year of the Dragon, tradition meets technology as the mythical creature comes to life on a pure original: revisited in a limited edition by digital artist Yang Yongliang, the V.S.O.P bottle is clad in a vibrant red hue to usher in a prosperous Chinese New Year.


    In 1870, Maurice Hennessy, a 4th-generation member of the Hennessy family, asked the Master Blender Emile Fillioux to use long-aged eaux-de-vie to create a special blend for sharing with family and friends. 

    More than 150 years later, Hennessy's powerful, balanced "Extra Old" blend remains the cognac of choice for sharing with one's inner circle. A moment heightened by an exceptional limited edition and collectible gift box designed by artist Yang Yongliang to celebrate the Year of the Dragon.


    This harmonious cognac is defined by its graceful character and immediately delights with its rich copper colour. It is a perfectly balanced blend, both voluptuous and round, and combines smoothness and strength with a silky texture. Naturally, it has a flavourful and deep, persistent finish.

    For this 2024 exclusive edition, the decanter features luminous gold dragon motifs and is available in only 485 numbered pieces, crafted by Bernardaud - the160 year-old French heritage porcelain maker.
