collaboration with NAS.
A. Cool! Nas is my favorite rapper and I just went to his concert in February this year. Hennessy is often seen in the club scene and is often drunk straight.

collaboration with NAS.
A. Being able to celebrate the 50th anniversary of hip-hop with NAS, my favorite artist, and Hennessy, my favorite drink, makes me very happy as I grew up in an environment where Hennessy was synonymous with hip-hop. I drink Hennessy to get in the mood before a show, and I also drink it when I’m writing songs.

collaboration with NAS.
A. We always have Hennessy in our studio, and we drink it both when we write songs and when we perform live. I also like to mix it with cranberries or black tea. We used Hennessy so much in our lyrics that we even got a ban on it, so almost all of our albums have Hennessy lyrics. (Benjazzy) has a tattoo of the Hennessy logo ax on his arm, and everyone has been drinking it for a long time.

A. I drink so much that I call myself “Ms. Hennessy.” Before work (DJing), I almost always drink a mini bottle straight. Ever since I was active in New York, when I think of hip-hop, I think of Hennessy. As the hip-hop scene celebrates its 50th anniversary, the number of Japanese artists is steadily increasing, which is very moving. Ellie Rose’s comment

A. Hennessy is a drink that is loved by people regardless of race or culture, so I think it’s a drink that goes well with music in that sense as well. I usually drink Hennessy when I DJ, and I feel that the moderate sweetness of Hennessy makes the music more pleasant. I personally love NAS, so I really liked this collaboration bottle!

The aroma is reminiscent of rich spices and fruit aromas, further accentuated by fruity notes and delicate vanilla nuances, giving the drinker a sense of power and pleasant harmony. Smooth and complex. The elegant and lively taste unique to Hennessy V.S can be said to be a symbol of powerful cognac.
Since Richard Hennessy introduced the unique cognac that bears his name in 1765, his uncompromising craftsmanship and passion have been passed down through eight generations of the Hennessy family. We use only eau-de-vie (raw sake) made from grapes from carefully selected fields, and find the perfect blend from our world’s largest storage capacity of over 350,000 barrels. These Hennessy commitments have evolved over time into the ultimate taste, and have captivated people as the most beloved cognac in the world. Even in Japan, since it was first imported in 1868, its high prestige has continued to make it stand out.
