With cognac “Very Special” means a lot and with Hennessy it means even more when they release their yearly Hennessy Very Special limited edition bottles. This year the design of the bottle was made by none other than the designer/owner of Obey and self-proclaimed artist, activist, graphic designer and DJ, Shepard Fairey. For the past 23 years, Shepard Fairey has been the name in underground street art beginning with his first guerilla project ‘Andre the Giant has a Posse’ which ultimately became the logo for the popular street wear brand Obey.

This release took place at Pistache and along with the free flowing libations and interesting crowd; KLEAR and 22tracks provide the future beats to keep everyone on the same rhythm.

This release, besides being an ongoing effort for Hennessy to connect its unique style with its ever changing drinkers, was a philosophical connection between Hennessy and Shepard Fairey’s “never ending quest for excellence, the love of true craftsmanship, the cultivation of consistency, the passion for tradition and innovation,” a statement that whatsgood. enjoyed experiencing first hand and has taken to heart.
