From Hennessy Bras Armé to Hennessy VS a short history in pictures

H

Although i already found some articles about this topic, here is my part of the story.

Please remember that i only write about stuff I own.

Anyway here is the short picture novel about the designs of the Hennessy VS ( Very Special )

Bottle number one was bottled either in the 60ties or 70ties.
This one has a stamp on it, HM Forces only. This is a mark to show that this bottle was sold at an army duty free store. As you may not know Germany is still occupied (in 2012) by British and American forces…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This bottle comes without a cork and taste stronger than the regular VS. Sorry that it is not sealed anymore but sometimes I have to try the stuff I own.
There are plenty designs of the old Bras Armé, this is one of about 8, in the 700ml size.
A few years later beginning of the 80ties Hennessy changed the design and the shape of the bottle.
Maybe it looked too grandpa, but I don’t know. An interesting thing is that the first bottle is still easy to get, about 50 Euros and you might get one or wont.

H

The second design almost looks like the one we can buy in any store, but there is one big difference the chest is still foil printed, like the xo´s nowadays still are. I just post the front right now, I do some single post in the near future. Although the name VS has not yet been established. This one has more value compared to the first one by the way.

H

The final bottle is the Hennessy VS 700ml from the end of the eighties – beginning nineties. This is why I wrote this post, because most authors just don’t mention them. It looks almost like the one you can buy in 2012. Maybe you recognize the difference if you don’t – just ask.
Take a bottle of today and compare it ( check out the center of the label )

I still have no opinion if the importer and the labels language matters to collectors. You can start a discussion in the comment segment. These are the German editions, every G 8 state has his own importers and comment, so you only have all bottles if you got a countries. I am satisfied with mine since I don’t discriminate other Cognachouses.

I guess Bras Armé lost its name due to copyright laws and EU regulations. Cognac is a trademark for a certain area in France, maybe they changed it to VS like all others did to have a certain standard like ISO.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Throw your five cent if you like, I am always eager to learn.

Cheers.

Hennessy VS Cognac x Colette x Futura limited 2012 edition

H

Hey, its a little bit borning to write about this bottle… Anyway this is the limited Futura x Colette bottle.

Limited release, 213 have been released. For those who do not know colette:

H

its an online shop with quite nice pieces. Their customer service is bullshit though. They dont reply on emails or any wishes and most things are 2 times overpriced.

I had to get this bottle just to make sure that i got the series complete.

Hennessy tries, quite successful, to generate new customers. They aim at the hipster – sneakercollector -us customer with this series.

H

I guess every year will be a colette release if Hennessy teams up with any artist-

The Futura series has a regular edition. the colette edition and in about 2 months the regular in a one liter edition.

Pretty boring aint it?

H

Did you see the new Flask 2012 series by the way? I wont get them, they look like some designer spent too much time at the circus.

Enjoy the few pictures.

Jimmy Hennessy Cognac – In adventures lies the truth

thesophsiticatedcollector.com

I love to introduce the Jimmy Hennessy Cognac to you my dear readers.

This Cognac seems to be a little bit harder to find than the average Hennessy products. Nether the less i got one and i actually like to sell it.

Anyway the Jimmy Hennessy was released in 1999 and that is where my info ends.

The Jimmy Hennessy looked like a bootleg to me first, but after browsing the web i made sure that it is something official.

Pretty unique compared to other Cognacs is that the Jimmy has 42 % and not 40 or 43% that most Cognacs have.

jimmy-hennessy-cognac-left-thesophisticatedcollector-com

The bottle looks like an American Whisky bottle and not like the decanters we are used to.

In adventures lies truth is written all over the bottle. I guess the adventure was to attract some whiskylovers. i guess it didn´t work because there is almost nothing to find on the web and therefore i seemed to be flop, when it comes to sales.

Please enjoy the pictures and ad me to your favorites.

Piper – Heidsieck Champagne film festival Cannes 2012 limited edition by Jean Paul Gaultier

Good morning,

besides all the minis, i cop differnet stuff too.

Lets go, now i show you, my dear readers, a piece from my Champagne collection:

Piper Heidsieck black bodyguard ( or crocodile ) 750ml designed by Jean Paul Gaultier.

This edition had been designed to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Cannes film festival and Piper Heidsieck´s 20th anniversary of being the official distributor for that festival.

I made sure to get myself some bottles. Piper Heidsieck released 4 different bodyguard editions so far ( red – pink – black/red -black/pink) im pretty sure that a golden edition will follow soon.

Anyway this is the official press release for the bottle:

The bottles are enveloped in stunning crocodile look leather and feature the iconic golden Palme d’Or logo.

Champagne Piper-Heidsieck was founded in 1785 by Florens-Louis Heidsieck, and since its creation, has always been associated with the greats and the goods; from France’s most famous Queen, Marie Antoinette to Marilyn Monroe, who notoriously claimed that she that she wore only a few drops of Chanel No. 5 perfume in bed, and began each morning with a glass of Piper-Heidsieck champagne.

Piper-Heidsieck has been the official sponsor of the Cannes Film Festival for over 20 years. Available in the classic red for Brut and pink for Rose Sauvage, these exceptional champagne bottles are definitely the drink of choice at the most prestigious annual film festival in the World.

Im looking forward for the next editions.

A funny fact, at least to me is, that the bottle´s colours matches the German flag ( black – red – gold )

Im pretty sure that Misses Gaultier wasn´t thinking about that.

This edition is available with the red label and the pink label. So far i just got a few red ones, not sure if i want the pink one.

If you own the red bodyguard edition, you should drink it now, if not the Champagne looses its grace.

A votre santé!
