Hennessy rolled out the red carpet at its Maurice Hennessy Tasting Dinner at the plush Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood on Monday.
Maurice Hennessy, eighth generation of the Hennessy family and Global Brand Ambassador, hosted an intimate evening with a select group of celebrities and tastemakers including Nipsey Hussle and “The Game” stars Lauren London and Jay Ellis.
The VIP guests sampled Hennessy’s finest cognacs including Hennessy X.O, Paradis, Richard Hennessy, and the $2,700 Paradis Impérial, which comes in a crystalline glass decanter created by French Baccarat designer Stephanie Balini.
Mr. Hennessy discussed the brand’s legacy and its impact on hip-hop during the three-course meal, which capped off with a delicious Hennessy Privilege chocolate mousse dessert.
Following the dinner, guests made their way onto the poolside patio, where they smoked handmade cigars and enjoyed views of Los Angeles.
