Maison Hennessy is one of the most iconic and distinguished cognac houses.

(which stands for "Very Special"), the most popular Cognac in the world.This newest of Hennessys VS limited editions is a striking collaboration between Hennessy and Argentinian-Spanish artist Felipe Pantone.

Pantone was granted access to the Hennessy bottle archives, to inspire his work titledW-3 Dimensional Three Stars,incorporating many of Hennessys historical elements, as well as his own signature lightning bolt.
