“It was important to me to work with a brand that has respect of its own history and traditions, as Hennessy does. It links the present to the past in everything it does, and I resonated with that. My inspiration for this collection comes from my special fondness for dragons –they’re so symbolic and legendary, and I grew up hearing stories about them. When I was a young boy, my grandmother gave me an antique coin with a dragon on it. I wanted to share that memory in this Hennessy collaboration, and that’s why the dragon has a metallic surface, like a childhood memory of seeing a dragon on a coin. I hope this inspires people to learn more about the historical and cultural contexts of dragons,” says artist Yang Yongliang.

The collection unveils a mesmerising digital art piece, breathing life, movement, and energy into metallic dragons gracefully dancing in and out of waves. Remarkable attention to detail is showcased, with a three-dimensional element capturing the texture of the dragon’s skin and teeth.

Each bottle is adorned with carefully chosen colours: red for joy and luck, and gold for prosperity. The collection comprises three exquisite variants – Hennessy V.S.O.P, the first blend crafted for royalty; Hennessy Paradis, the most harmonious blend from a rare and collectible decanter; and Hennessy X.O, a symbol of prosperity and good fortune.
