Hennessy XO unveils limited edition gift set
Cognac brand Hennessy has partnered with specialist retailers to launch a limited edition gift set for its XO bottling to celebrate Father’s Day next month.
Father’s Day falls on Sunday 20 June in the UK. The celebratory gift set includes a bottle of Henessy XO and two limited edition, bespoke tumbler glasses, designed by Baccarat designer Thomas Bastide especially for XO.
The shape of the glass has been created to highlight the aromas of Hennessy XO, served neat, over ice or in a ‘simple’ serve.
Hennessy XO was created more than 250 years ago by Maurice Hennessy and cellar master Emile Fillioux in 1870. The blend was originally intended for Hennessy’s close family and friends, but is now available worldwide.
Renaud Fillioux de Gironde, the eighth-generation master blender for Maison Hennessy, said: “Hennessy XO is the Cognac for every occasion. Its timelessness – the fact that its inspiration never changes and never bends to the whims of trends – means that it exists in a realm beyond fashion.
“As time goes by, we have noticed that people are appreciating a wider array of moments for tasting than they ever have before.
“Its versatility is what I think makes Hennessy XO so contemporary and relevant today. It is the perfect gift for any refined spirit lover.”
The Hennessy XO Father’s Day gift set will be available from early June for a limited time, while stocks last from Master of Malt, The Bottle Club and Majestic stores, priced at RRP £154 (US$218).
