Fans of Hennessy should get themselves to Singapore Changi Airport, where they can be among the first to try the iconic Cognac brand’s new take on the Hennessy X.X.O. Originally created in 1870 by Maurice Hennessy and Emile Fillioux, Hennessy X.X.O was housed in the traditional Charentaise bottle and sent all around the world including the U.S. and China. With such a globetrotting past, it seems only fitting that the storied blend should relaunch in airports. After its initial offering in Singapore Changi Airport, Hennessy X.X.O will also be available at DFS, Hong Kong International Airport and will extend to other duty free locations in October.
So what can discerning drinkers expect at the Hennessy Maison pop-up store in Changi Airport’s Terminal 1? Well, Hennessy X.X.O is defined by a spicy complexity, with notes of bitter orange, nutmeg, liquorice, and peppermint leaf. What’s more, travellers will be treated to gifts at the concourse store as well as within DFS’ wines and spirits shops at the airport. We’ll toast to that.
Available exclusively at DFS, Singapore Changi Airport until 31 August
