The Holiday’s are right around the corner, so it’s about that time to spice up your liquor cabinet. I personally have been looking all over the place for this bottle, I find it more exciting scavenging for things rather than ordering online. I finally came across it at a liquor store in Lakewood, they had quite a few which was surprising. I wanted to buy them all, mainly cause I gave a knack for collecting things — like this Limited Edition bottle by Ryan McGinness.
Hennessy has had some astounding collaborations in the past like Kaws, Os Gemeos, Obey, and Futura, just to name a few. It makes is that much more exciting trying to get your hands on the limited edition bottles.
Now, regardless of how you drink your Hennessy – neat, on the rocks, or mixed, we can all appreciate just how good of a blend you can create using Hennessy. I personally enjoy my Hennessy on the rocks, but I can never pass up a well mixed cocktail.
