Hennessy Global Ambassador and 8th generation descendant of the Hennessy family, Mr. Maurice Hennessy hosted an exclusive two-part media day and tasting in Los Angeles. The first was a private tasting and luncheon in the early afternoon, followed by an intimate tasting and dinner that evening.
Both events were hosted at the lavish Hercules Estate in the Hollywood Hills where guests had the privilege to indulge in a Hennessy Prestige Range tasting including Hennessy XO, Hennessy Paradis Impérial, and Richard Hennessy with Mr. Maurice Hennessy. Throughout the tasting, Maurice spoke proudly about the brand, its refined marques and the history of the almost 250-year old spirit. Delectable meals followed the tastings which were splendidly prepared by renowned celebrity chef Gary Arabia who crafted each entree to complement the rich selection of cognacs.
Notable guests at the luncheon included singer Jessi Malay and DJ Orator. Notable guests at the dinner included actor/TV personality Terrence J, recording artist Mayer Hawthorne, actor/model Lance Gross, Def Jam Recording artist YG and tastemaker Karen Civil.
