Celebrate in style with Hennessy XO Festive Joy
Flying home for the holidays? Bring the festive ‘cheers’ with you
If you are heading to the airport to board a flight home for the holidays, be sure to stop by duty free first to load up on the appropriate festive goodies for your loved-ones. Stuck for ideas? Give the gift of Hennessy XO Festive Joy, an exceptional limited-edition cognac that encapsulates the flavours of winter and provides an instant shot of warmth on a cold evening.
A Tipple for Special Occasions
Few cognacs are served with the kind of history associated with Hennessy. Irishman Richard Hennessy opened the first cognac distillery in 1765 while serving in the army of Louis XV of France, and in 1794, he took his company global with a delivery of his famed tipple to America, which had gained its independence just 18 years before.
Over 200 years on, and Hennessy Cognac is still renowned for its refinement and sophistication, with XO Cognac occupying the most exclusive spot in their archives. Now, this very special drink is available to all and it has a new look for the holidays. It’s waiting to be discovered in duty free.
Maurice Hennessy first introduced XO Cognac in 1870, as a special treat for his exclusive circle of friends. XO ‒ which stands for Extra Old ‒ is comforting and warming, with sweet notes mingled with spices, woods and a touch of chocolate. Allow it to linger on your tongue and taste candied fruit, cocoa and pepper. Its bold and rich flavour is something worth taking your time over, a flavour to be enjoyed over the holidays and shared among your favourite people. With its special limited-edition box, Hennessy XO Festive Joy is the perfect gift for lovers of cognac.
Hennessy XO Festive Joy can be enjoyed neat, over ice or with a shot of water ‒ but it also lends itself to a more festive mix. Close the curtains, light up the fire and snuggle down on the sofa in your favourite festive jumper, under a cashmere blanket and with one of these delicious hot cocktails created by Hennessy. It’s the very best way to chill this winter.
