Welcome in the new lunar year celebrating the ox, symbol of openness, talent and confidence. This year, Maison Hennessy commissioned the renowed chinese artist Liu Wei to work on the XO and VSOP limited edition 2021 dedicated to this event. The contemporary artist has been fascinated by the story of Maison Hennessy, since its fouding. He has been impressed during his visit in Cognac, from the vines to the cellars and  finally the meeting with the master blender. Liu Wei created an abstract painting called SPRING brimming of colour and movement. The creation has been designed to remain open to individual interpretation; So feel free to imagine your own ! 

“In cognac-making, there is space for infinite imagination. It’s about exploring the unknown and taking nothing for granted.” Liu Wei
By this new collection, Maison Hennessy reaffirms its inherent values of constancy and dedication to craft through special edition artistic collaboration.
