Hennessy knows how to make cognac attractive. I mean just look at these gorgeous vintage Hennessy ads. The brand knows how to pair striking creative with a classic, time-tested spirit. Not that they need help getting the word out. Just a few months ago, there was news that first quarter Hennessy sales were so strong that there could be of a shortage of bottles for the rest of the year. Shortages aside, there is a very special bottle of Hennessy that won’t be around for very long: the Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition by JonOne.

Originally from New York, JonOne is a graffiti artist who moved to Paris in 1987 and quickly established himself as a force in the street art scene. He’s appeared in exhibitions all over the world, including eight solo shows last year alone (six in France, one in Israel and one in the U.S.).

Back in 2012, we had a blast at the party that launched the Hennessy V.S. Limited Edition by Futura, another graffiti artist originally from NYC who has public collections in France. This year’s event marked the seventh collaboration between Hennessy and world-renowned artists.

The launch party was held a couple weeks ago at Monk Space in LA. The event featured tunes by DJ Politik, celebs like Jamie Chung and Morris Chestnut and a live-painting session from JonOne. Primary color-inspired cocktails were served (cinnamon-y red, tonic-y blue, lemon-y yellow). These bright, glow-in-the-dark libations fit in well with JonOne’s lively bottle design and overall color-party aesthetic.

The Hennessy V.S. Limited Edition by JonOne bottles are on sale now. You can pick them up on ReserveBar.com or other fine liquor retailers who appreciate classic spirits in sexy packages.
