Making its U.S. debut at Industry City in New York, “Le Grand Voyage” is a journey into the rich and distinct world of Hennessy that uses multi-sensory elements to showcase the nature, people and know-how of a dynasty spanning 250+ years and a process perfected by tradition. 

Spotlighting the unique savoir-faire behind the world’s most prestigious Cognac, the brand is offering private events from November 8-14, to experience, learn the Cognac-making process and appreciate its flavor complexity like if you were part of the Hennessy’s Comité de Dégustation (Tasting Committee).

From a simulated rainfall depicting unpredictable weather and terrain conditions faced by winemakers, to a guided tasting by Hennessy Ambassador Jamie Evans, attendees will have the opportunity to explore the unmatched harmony and balance of V.S.O.P Privilège and the multisensory taste odyssey of Hennessy X.O, the original Extra Old Cognac, to later finish the journey with cocktails at the lounge, and meet with cocktail journalist and ‘Resident Ice-Pert’ Camper English.
