07 Jun Hennessy VSOP New Bottle Launch
I’m sure you all familiar with the drink Hennessy V.S.O.P. I’ve been to the Hennessy Artistry events before and those were crazy. This event though was a bit more private and special. It was mini party to launch the new look of the Hennesy V.S.O.P Bottle! The event was held at Doubletree Hilton on the 18th of May 2012 at around 8pm.
As I stepped out of the lift to the area where the event was held, I took my time to see the walls that lead up to the room. It showed a timeline of the Hennessy bottle from the time it was created to the present. I found that informative and interesting to read as I strutted alond the “red carpet” 😛
The legend of Hennessy V.S.O.P. began on 7 October 1817, when the future King George IV of England asked the great French cognac House to supply him with a special cognac described in the records with the words “Very Superior Old Pale” (ahhh so that’s what VSOP stands for :P, you learn something new everyday).
Just before entering the hall everyone was busy taking a shot with the red backdrop and of course i had to as well. Big thanks to rarablack.com for the gorgeous bandage dress! I picked black and gold cause i kinda wanted to match the bottle haha.
Take look at the new Hennesy V.S.O.P

Hennesy events never fail to entertain me. How can you go wrong with a great drink, great company, great music and great photography mediums. Inside the black room, you are greeted with the DJ booth right next to bars where you can try different Hennessy concoctions.
One of the things i had to try for the night was the 360 photobooth. Stand in the middle of the circle with your friends pose and just stay put for a couple of seconds. This was the result! Loveeeee. It’s so cool, everyone was holding a Hennessy VSOP bottle and while i would’ve loved a bottle.. i couldn’t help reaching for the awesome red electric guitar propped on one side of the circular stage.
The fabulous company of the night. Above together with me was Sarah and Jojo Stuys. The dashing man next to me was the emcee of the night and geek buddy Will Quah. I’m still amazed by his voice, which has a deep timber that will just send chills down a lady’s spine ^_~
