The House of Hennessy boutique popped-up in Heathrow’s Terminal 5 last November, offering a taste of luxury for travellers. For the duration of its run, it has been the only place in the world outside of Cognac where consumers can taste some of the rarest and most decadent Hennessy products, as well as take part in unique Cognac masterclasses.
The House of Hennessy’s run has now been extended until 7 April, and to celebrate the last couple of weeks of their run, Hennessy are giving Square Meal readers the exclusive chance to win a lunch for two at Helene Dorroze at The Connaught and a bottle of travel retail limited edition Hennessy Privé.
The lucky winners will be treated to a four-course menu, plus dessert each, along with tastings of Hennessy XO and Paradis. The meal will also be accompanied by a bottle of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs, and water will be included.
To enter, email [email protected] telling us the name of Heston Blumenthal’s upcoming restaurant over in Terminal 2. A winner will be picked at random from all the correct answers on Friday 28 March.
*Please note that the winner must book their meal by 31 July 2014.
In 1920, James Hennessy, a man of power and taste with strong influence on French social and political life, had a “very private” cognac specially blended to honour his friends among the elites of the day. He requested the Hennessy Master Blender Alfred Fillioux create a cognac that would be both structured and elegant, to reflect the values of Art Deco.
Nearly a century later, Hennessy revived this tradition. Alfred Fillioux’s descendant, Yann Fillioux, composed Hennessy Privé, a fine tribute to James Hennessy. A cognac inspired by Art Deco.
To create Hennessy Privé, the Master Blender has selected remarkable old “eaux-de-vie” which he has aged in young oak casks, to reinforce their strength.
The result is an emblematic cognac of great distinction for true connoisseurs. The perfect example of balance: round and refined, structured and velvety with delicate notes of crystallised fruit. To appreciate its full richness, Hennessy Privé should be drunk neat.
