The Hennessy VHILS Limited Edition VS Cognac is the eight edition in this unique collaboration of the Cognac giant with some of the 21st century’s brightest artists. VIHLS, from Portugal, uses the technique known as ‘creative destruction’ in his work. Both he and Hennessy have worked together to create a limited edition bottle with what they say has, ‘a social conscience’. To this end, the design showcases faces of various musicians, artists, and activists who’re actively working to promote creativity within their communities.
VIHLS has used various elements in his design, with the use of acid, bleach and, ink, as well as different mediums. These include steel, stone, and wood. This talented young man literally exploded onto the scene in 2008, when he exhibited at the London, Cans Festival. His real name is Alexandre Farto, and he works with hammers, chisels, drills, and even explosives. When you think ‘contemporary’, then VIHLS really is the epitome of the word.
As with all of these artist-collaborated limited editions, the Cognac within the bottle is the regular Hennessy VS. Of course, this is not a product that collectors will buy to drink. Rather, it will be one to add to the already distinguished line up of such bottles. For example, the offerings by JonOne, Ryan McGinness, and Futura.
