The good folks over at Hennessy V.S. put together an amazing event at High Line stages in NYC for the release of their limited edition drink. The bottle was designed by none other than Ryan McGinness.
Hennessy, one of the most well known cognac’s, celebrated the launch of their newly designed limited edition bottle this past Thursday at the Highline Stages which is located in the Meatpacking District of NYC. For this limited edition bottle, Hennessy teamed up with NYC based artist Ryan McGinness.
Many gathered for this entertaining event. Most of the attendees came through the W 15th street entrance where they were instantly introduced to the previous works of Mr. Ryan McGinness. It began with the showings of McGinness’s blackhole artwork and then finished with a 90 second clip that previewed the makings and inspirations behind the creation of the bottle. The event was titled #ArtOfTheChase.
There were touch screen projections and stations that allowed for guests to create their own bottle. From there, you were then allowed to take pictures with instant upload access. The bar served non stop Hennessy giving the guests a few fused drinks from Hennessy V.S. Ginger Fizz to Hennessy V.S. Tonic.
The night was ended with a 25 min set by G.O.O.D Music artist 2 Chainz. He hit the stage to perform some of his fan favorites such as “I’m Different”, “Birthday Song”, “No Lie”, and “Rich As F*ck”. He also performed a new song which will be featured on his upcoming album Trapavelli.
