In 2015, the year of Hennessy’s 250th anniversary, the Maison chose to pay tribute to James Hennessy, the eldest son of the Maison’s founder, Richard Hennessy. To celebrate the new blend, the Maison chose to collaborate with Marc Newson on the design of the decanter, the result is a strikingly simple, contemporary and ergonomic design. “My work involves understanding the starting point and the context and then creating the missing link, the decanter hopefully conveys the visionary approach of the Maison while redefining perspectives between past and present.
