HENNESSY INTRODUCES A MATCH MADE IN COGNAC:
HENNESSY VERY SPECIAL x GINGER MAKE A DYNAMIC, URBAN PAIRING

Hennessy is proud to present an exciting pairing: Hennessy Very Special x Ginger.

As it happens, this innovative and metropolitan duo makes, in the words of the Hennessy Tasting Committee, “one of the best possible organoleptic matches”. In other words, ginger and Hennessy Very Special were meant to be. Just a hint of fragrant ginger is an ideal catalyst for Very Special because the sweet spice quite naturally offsets the cognac’s roundness and suppleness of aromas, highlighting its bold character. Hand-in-hand, they dazzle.

To celebrate a match made in Cognac, Hennessy Very Special mixologists have composed a new cocktail repertoire. Recipes span four categories, from novice and party-friendly sharing recipes to trend forward and expert-level cocktail creations.

A selection of recipes from the Hennessy Very Special x Ginger collection includes basics such as the elegant Hennessy Ginger Mule signature cocktail, the sweet and crisp Hennessy Ginger Ale and Lime or Ginger Beer and Lime. The sophisticated Hennessy Ginger Mint Punch is a trend-driven party favorite, while expert picks include the bubbly Homemade Ginger Lemonade, the honey – and orange – tinged Hennessy Ginger Old Fashioned or the Hennessy Ginger Manhattan, made with vermouth and angostura bitters.

Starting in January 2018, these and other recipes were posted on Instagram at @hennessy using the hashtag #HennessyVerySpecial.
