Apart from savoring the bestselling cognacs, Hennessy fans can look forward to yet another thing before the end of 2018. Inspired by the travel diaries of folks at Open Ceremony, the cognac-manufacturer is all set to release a brand-new collection that comes replete with a travel bag and an exclusive cocktail kit stuffed with premium Hennessy goodies.
Christened as ‘East Meets West’, the collection is wholly inspired by Open Ceremony co-founders’ Carol Lim and Humberto Leon’s heritage and world travels. The Hennessy X.O “East Meets West” Travel Bag ( $350) blends tradition and heritage with modern elements and appears as an expanded version of a classic OC design. Made with luxe gold leather, it features extra interior pockets and an adjustable strap for a casual yet uber-chic look. The Cocktail Kit ($204) on the other hand I,s inspired by a traditional Chinese tea service and comes with a step-by-step guide and ingredients – including a 750ml bottle of Hennessy X.O – to make 12 inspired cocktails.
Commenting on the launch Opening Ceremony co-owner Humberto Leon said, “The collaboration with Hennessy was born from a shared passion for bringing together and celebrating different cultures. For this design, we wanted to explore and honor our heritage by drawing inspiration from family traditions, our world travels, and the blending of our Eastern and Western backgrounds.” The East Meets West travel bag can be shopped online on opencermony.com whereas the Hennessy cocktail kit can be purchased via premiere cocktail delivery service, Cocktail Courier.
