Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège Collection 6 Launch

Hennessy VSOP has some dazzling new clothes made by Peter Saville, an English graphic designer, and some of us were invited to check it out.

This would be their 2nd collaboration while limited editions have been released yearly since 2010.

We got to taste a few cocktails made with the cognac, paired with food by Hacha Mecha @ TREC KL.

3 Hennessy VSOP cocktails and on the rocks. (cocktails images: MHDM)

Horse’s Neck (Hennessy V.S.O.P, Ginger Ale, Angostura Bitters and Lemon Wedges)
A nice starter drink with ginger flavours that wasn't overpowering. Like teh halia. Except hold the tea and substitute with it Henessy. :)

Side Car (Hennessy V.S.O.P, Triple Sec and Lemon Juice)
A classic brandy sour cocktail. Birthed during (likely) the pre-prohibition, the beauty of this drink is in its simplicity. I love this.

Mint Julep (Hennessy V.S.O.P, Angostura Bitters, Mint Leaves)
Traditionally made with bourbon, good if you have a sweet tooth (I don't) and prefer a light-tasting, minty drink which doesn't taste strong.

Hennessy on the rocks - there's really no better way than to enjoy a good cognac except neat or on the rocks. 

Ikki Hennessy Signature Cocktails

We were also introduced to 2 IKKI signatures created by the Lead Bartender, Osmund Bernard.
  • The French Summer - Osmund's tribute to summer in France and a nod to Hennessy's birth country.
  • A Letter from Mr. Ikki - strong flavours of oak and coffee. Also available on menu at IKKI. 
Age caught up to us and we had to leave before the REAL party started at Avalon, LiveHouse and Zouk Club KL. :(
