Exclusive Hennessy Dinner

Hennessy X.O

Last evening, I was one of the chosen few and had the pleasure to be part of yet another exquisite Hennessy Experience! Whereas I have attended several events in the past, and some of those had a notion of exclusivity, this one was one of a kind!

Being part of the organizing team, we hand delivered all the personal invitations in thick white envelopes with golden letters, and the nicely styled card inside aimed to set the stage for what to expect: a dinner in style. “Le Chateau” at the Intercontinental Hotel was the ideal setting for this gathering of connoisseurs.

We were honored to have the global Brand Development Director of Hennessy, Mr. Laurent Dominguez, as our host together with Mr. Alexandre Helaine Moët Hennessy Market Manager. It’s safe to say we were in great hands. Mr. Dominguez led us through an immersion into the rich heritage, finesse and sophistication of Maison Hennessy.

He translated the rich history and savoir faire of Hennessy into a story that made us understand and appreciate the passion and the quest for perfection of the brand, truly a global adventure dipped in rich history of French origin that started in 1765.

Our elegant host, at his maiden voyage to Kenya, used the stages of our 4 course fine dining meal to let us sip and savour the different pearls on the Hennessy crown; while we were being served by waiters in white gloves and red ties. All in great style, befitting the evening’s atmosphere.

We learned about the great cognacs of Maison Hennessy, the VS, VSOP and of course the ultimate X.O. Accompanied by stories of how each name came to be.

Once again thanks to every one who made time to join us for the Hennessy VIP experience!
