The first quarter of the year is coming to an end and I’m glad that it didn’t end just like that as Hennessy V.S.O.P KYRIOS is set to arrive in clubs and entertainment outlets this March, with a series of nationwide parties to celebrate its much anticipated nightlife debut.
The first party will commence on 21 March from 9pm at The Butter Factory in KL, promising a trademark Hennessy V.S.O.P party experience which will take revellers on a journey to discover the Codes of Hennessy V.S.O.P, in good company of stellar dance music acts from Malaysia and Taiwan, as well as the world’s most loved cognac – Hennessy V.S.O.P
About Hennessy V.S.O.P KYRIOS
Hennessy V.S.O.P KYRIOS is the 3rd addition to the Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege Collection. KYRIOS comes after the Helios (2011) and the Nyx (2012), taking on a matte carbon gray mantle and an aura of understated elegance. KYRIOS, or Guardian of the Codes in Greek, signifies the key to the codes of the legendary world of Hennessy V.S.O.P:
The Grapes symbolizes the vineyards which they refer to the ancestral savoir-faire, the elaborate craftsmanship, and the extreme care that is conferred to the creation of a high-quality product.
The emblematic “Bras Armé” reflects the long history of Hennessy. It has been part of the Hennessy seal for more than 2 centuries. Now engraved in the glass, it emphasizes the constant search of quality. The “bras armé” carries the grandeur of the House of Hennessy and represents the nobility of the cognac.
1817 is the date when the legend of Hennessy V.S.O.P began. On October 7th, 1817, the future King George IV of England asked the House of Hennessy to supply him with a special cognac. A blending that is described in the records with the words “Very Superior Old Pale”. This pale-coloured cognac, was the kind preferred at the time by the English, who were known for their appreciation of high-quality eaux-de-vie that age well while keeping a light robe. The prince’s request was precise. This cognac was supposed to be developed with a finely balanced structure. But for James Hennessy, who received the order, nothing was impossible.
The Copper Colour brings elegance and style to the carafe, while its accentuating lines glow in molten copper under black light. The copper colour is a reminder of the pot stills, as this deep tint evokes centuries of distillation.
Today the new silhouette, a reinterpretation of the original iconic V.S.O.P bottle from 1954, flaunts a carefully designed optical effect. The front of the carafe evokes a pyramid perspective, discrete but structured, suggesting an upward vanishing point as if a vertical thrust is about to raise it toward the heavens.
With KYRIOS being a manifestation of Hennessy’s “Guardian of the Codes”, revellers will be familiarized with these Codes in an avant garde party atmosphere, carrying one clear message – to Guard Your Codes while Pursuing Your Dreams.
Local champions and H-Artistry alumni Mr. Nasty & GuruGuru and B.A.T.E will take the decks on the 21st to supply befitting music for the night, while one of Taiwan’s most respected female deckmeisters DJ Cookie will headline the night. The resident of Taipei’s premier, luxury nightspot LUXY will be bringing her passionate and pulsating sounds to not only Kuala Lumpur, but also to the Hennessy V.S.O.P KYRIOS parties lined up for Room @ Autocity in Penang and iBeam in Batu Pahat.
