Xmas Gifts Parade 2020 : Hennessy Cognac

Saint Nicolas is back on his boat and on his way to Spain… that's our cue to start the annual Christmas series on Double Strainger. Because it’s the first year we switched to English, we had to change the name and slightly adapt the concept. Starting today we’ll share lots of tasty gift ideas under the new name “Xmas Gifts Parade”. And we selected a real beauty to start: Hennessy Cognac

Each year Hennessy invites an artist to decorate a bottle for the Christmas holidays. This year, the celebrated artist Faith XLVII explores the alchemy of the artistic process in a unique global art collaboration for the Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition. 

For the 10th annual Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition, the Maison Hennessy is proud to announce its collaboration with the street-turned-studio artist Faith XLVII. 

In 2020, the Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition by Faith XLVII opens an exciting new chapter in the Maison’s tradition of fostering partnerships with artists who are part of a global movement. In extending its platform to committed, visionary talents who strive to affect positive change on a community level, Hennessy reinforces its commitment to supporting emerging artists.

As the guest artist for the 10th annual Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition, Faith XLVII is the first female voice to join the Limited Editions series, a formidable artistic lineage that features internationally acclaimed talents such as Felipe Pantone, Vhils, JonOne, Shepard Fairey, Os Gemeos, Futura and Kaws.

With this artistic inspired cognac I mixed up a slightly adapted version of the classic Sazerac. Artists and Absinthe seem to be a good match, or not ? 

The result was absolutely delicious, I liked it so much that I actually made it again the next day 😉 

Hennessy Sazerac

4 cl Hennessy Cognac Very Special Limited Edition
2 cl Bulleit Rye whiskey
3 dashes Peychauds bitters
10 ml simple syrup
Absinthe (for the rinse)

Add a splash of Absinthe to your tumbler and swirl it around. Don’t discard it, this stuff is too good to throw away 😉 
Add the rest of the ingredients to a large mixing glass with lots of ice. Stir for 20 seconds and strain in the tumbler. Add a big block of ice and garnish with lemon.
