Hennessy announced a limited edition Hennessy X.O 49 Commemorative Cocktail Set to celebrate the achievement of Kamala Harris becoming the first Black South Asian American Madam Vice President of the United States.
We are honored to pay tribute to the historic advancements of the first Black and South Asian American Madam Vice President, as well as to all those who are pushing the limits of potential and in doing so, are inspiring others. – Jasmin Allen, Senior Vice President, Hennessy US
The Hennessy X.O 49 Commemorative Cocktail Set includes a 750ml bottle of Hennessy X.O, the recipe for The 49th cocktail, a custom ice mold with display tray, and elegant keepsake glassware, etched with the historic number 49 (Kamala Harris is the 49th to enter the nation’s second-highest office) – all housed in commemorative packaging. Hennessy X.O is the world’s original Extra Old Cognac that established the category in 1870. In this spirit of breaking new ground, the Hennessy X.O 49 Commemorative Cocktail Set is dedicated to all pioneers paving a path for the future generations.
Last month’s historic appointment marked another important milestone: the first graduate of a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) to ascend to the highest levels of government. To celebrate this legacy, Hennessy has pledged an additional monetary donation to long- term partner, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), in support of the advancement of Black women into the C-Suite. In partnership with TMCF, Hennessy launched the landmark Hennessy Fellows program in 2019, a long-term $10 million scholarship initiative for HBCU graduate students designed to equip the next generation of African American leaders through financial assistance, access, and experiences.
The $259.99 Hennessy X.O set is available for purchase at CocktailCourier.com.
