As we step into the vibrant and auspicious 2024 Chinese New Year, Maison Hennessy unveils a breathtaking celebration of the Year of the Dragon with a limited-edition collection that draws inspiration from ‘Dragon’s Odyssey’ – the digital art piece created by the visionary Chinese artist Yang Yongliang. The unique artwork seamlessly melds traditional Chinese artistry with cutting-edge digital technology, bringing to life a mesmerizing dance of metallic dragons that symbolize movement, energy, and the fiery spirit of the dragon.
Yang Yongliang, a prodigious artist with roots in a picturesque water town in Greater Shanghai, draws on his traditional Chinese landscape painting training and later embraces digital and three-dimensional art during his studies in central Shanghai. His unique journey through artistic techniques and the dynamic urban transformation of Shanghai around him converge in ‘Dragon’s Odyssey,’ a masterpiece that connects the rich past of traditional dragons with the limitless possibilities of the future.
The attention to detail in Yongliang’s artwork is nothing short of extraordinary. The metallic dragons, dancing amid waves, exhibit a three-dimensional quality that not only captures the essence of movement but also highlights the texture of the dragon’s skin and teeth. Each bottle in this limited-edition collection boasts a carefully chosen color—red for joy and luck, and gold for prosperity – reflecting the aspirations and positive energy of the new year.
Inspired by Maison Hennessy’s empowering campaign strapline, ‘together we are unstoppable,’ the 2024 limited-edition collection serves as a visual manifestation of unity and celebration. Available in VSOP, XO, and Paradis, each bottle offers a unique experience, whether as a festive gift, a centerpiece for home décor, or a companion for ringing in the new year with friends and family.
Hennessy’s VSOP, renowned for its signature blend, stands as a classic and versatile choice, perfect whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, in a cocktail, or as a long drink. The XO, crafted at Maurice Hennessy’s request for friends and family, remains a multifaceted cognac and a timeless icon of the world’s first X.O blend. Meanwhile, the Paradis, with its graceful, silky character and rich copper color, captivates with floral notes of jasmine, delicate hints of cinnamon, and exotic fruits.
Adding an extra layer of exclusivity, the Hennessy Paradis 2024 limited-edition comprises only 485 numbered units. Housed in a meticulously handcrafted porcelain decanter, featuring luminous gold dragon artwork, this masterpiece is a testament to the craftsmanship of Bernardaud, a family-owned company with a 160-year legacy in porcelain making. The precision, quality, and excellence displayed in each decanter echo the rich heritage passed down through generations.
