Celebrating the new Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege Collection 7 layered harmonies by Carnovsky in style. The bottle is designed in such if you use a different color filter to see, you’ll get a different layer design unveiled to you. Besides that, to mark the RGB combination, Hennessy had pair up both strong talent with a specially designed menu and bespoke cocktails by Skillet @ 165 and Hyde 53 together.
The night showcased the limited edition design by Milan-based artistic duo, Carnovsky, while emphasizing the cognac’s versatility in the art of mixology and food pairing.
The dynamic duo Andrew from Hyde 53 and Chef Raymond Tham is indeed a great combination.
Start off with our first station upon entering Skillet 163 is to try out a special nitrogen Sorbet infuse with Hennessy. It is so good that you would want another 3 more . Refreshing and light in taste of Hennessy.
Carnovsky designed a variety of patterns illustrating the fundamental elements of cognac as well as symbols signifying Hennessy’s history. The duo then translated Hennessy’s story into separate designs, rendering it in “RGB” – Red, Green and Blue overlays – to illustrate the origin and spirit of Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège. Resulting in a single design, the three narrative layers are unveiled when viewed through a coloured filter:
RED – ENERGY:
Symbolizes the forces and efforts in creating V.S.O.P Privilège.
GREEN – NATURE:
Signifies the origins of V.S.O.P in nature and its fruits, conveying the finesse and elegance of V.S.O.P Privilège.
BLUE – DREAM:
Represents the sensorial journey and experience of tasting V.S.O.P Privilège.
While everyone is having a good time and waiting for the food to be prepared, we had some drinks too.
Starting off with the colour Green that goes into mini finger food:
