When it comes to the world of spirits and liquor, it’s no surprise that NFTs have made their appearance in liquor bottles. Exquisite in design and style, when it comes to luxury cognac Hennessy tops the charts and the Hennessy Paradis Golden NFT Edition takes our breath away.
Originating from the class Hennessy Paradis, the new addition takes a dip in gold. An exclusive decanter dressed in a glowing gold outfit, it comes with a remarkable NFT designed by the artist Veneda Carter. (Veneda is a jewellery designer renowned for working with gold). The Hennessey Paradis Golden Edition is replete with an exclusive 3D animated NFT artwork of an ethereal desert-scape, a tribute to its graceful character, and to the concept of the golden hour suspended moment. When describing her unique design Carter said it is “… a bounty of Nature polished by human hands”. For Carter, behind every jewel in the design, there’s a story to be told. “Many of us have felt its spirit and we long to understand it, a harmony that binds us,” comments Carter. The NFT artwork concept tells one of those stories, that connects with your emotions.
Limited to 500 bottles and an additional 100 in December, the first is available in 70cl and then in magnum (150cl) format.
Created in 1979 as an ode to symphonic harmony, Hennessy Paradis golden decanters contain Hennessy Paradis, a gold-tinged cognac, a harmonious blend, crafted using the maison’s finest and precious eaux-de-vie, making it supple, light and round.
The coppery gold colour reflects the many years spent maturing in French oak barrels, and Hennessy Paradis cognac exudes floral notes of dried rose and honeysuckle, underpinned by intense notes of red fruits and spices. With a graceful, silky texture, it has a flavourful and deep, persistent finish. Honey, dried flowers, truffles and soft spices come to the fore in a melting pot of flavours. Delicate notes of cinnamon, cardamom and fruits give way to perfumes of dried rose petals and sweet briar jam.
