French cognac maker Hennessy is staging an exhibition at the Galaxy Macau integrated resort, which recaps the brand’s history and latest invention.
The Hennessy Declassified exhibition is not a traditional event, but an interactive and immersive experience that explores the history and art of the Hennessy family.
The brand will invite viewers to take a peek at the secrets of Hennessy, and start on a palatable journey of the cognac.
A tasting room is especially made to pair with this exhibition. It is called the Hennessy Tasting Committee’s Grand Tasting Room, which is modeled after the closed-to-public tasting room situated on Rue de la Richonne in France.
It is opened from Fridays to Sundays and prior reservation is required. Registered participants will take on the role as a member of the enigmatic Grand Tasting Committee, where they will learn to understand and make decisions regarding the cognac, with important members of the committee, before they sample some of the finest production of the brand.
The exhibition is open until October 6 at the Crystal Lobby of Galaxy Macau. The same exhibition has been staged at Shanghai and Hangzhou, among other cities.
