Hennessy V.S.O.P New Bottle Launch

An elegant night it was on Friday, May 18th, 2012 where Hennessy Malaysia unveiled their new bottle launch.

The event held at Doubletree by Hilton, media, celebrities and invited guests were among those that graced the ballroom with their presence.

Building the future with Hennessy V.S.O.P, moving forward in a spirit of continuity with a new bottle and packaging design.

After hanging around a fair bit at the lounge area being served with some finger food and of course, Hennessy, awaiting for the procession to start, we then proceeded to what was called a "White Room" which is obviously white for the ceremony of unveiling the new bottle and packaging.

Our host for the night:

Chris Bangle is the man that designed Hennessy's new bottle who's best known for designing automobiles particularly his work during his tenure at BMW Group as Chief of Design. He was the 1st American chief of design of BMW on October 1, 1992, where he designed the Z9 Gran Turismo concept car:

Throughout his entire career, this is the first time he decided to venture out from designing automobiles. “Designing for Hennessy gave me the same sensations as working on designs for fast BMWs or a great Rolls Royce. It is that experience of a unique emotion.” said Chris Bangle

The bottle has a taller top and base and rounder approach to it's predecessor and sports the Hennessy symbol above it's label.

The different Hennessy bottles throughout the years.

For Hennessy, the combination of design aesthetics and ergonomics with a never-ending quest for quality and security is indispensable. V.S.O.P. embodies these values. Because that is how the future is made: by designing legends.

Once that was over and done with, we proceed to head on towards an inner room aptly named the Dark Room for the continuation of the party celebration.

It was certainly a very familiar sight when we stepped into the area as it takes us back to the memories of Hennessy Artistry:

There's also a 360 camera that many people were interested in having their photos with their friends taken.

Here's one of the sample result:

Ok, so mine had some technical difficulties to it that it didn't had the full 360. >.<
Here's one of the many that did:

The night of inebriation ended for me with a satisfied feeling.

Of course it's 'laggy'. It's just a combination of shots from many different cameras put together to make a video.
