Cognac connoisseurs, entertainers, and the fashionably inclined made the Regency Bar & Lounge at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel their destination of choice Sunday last for the 200th-anniversary celebrations of the Hennessy VSOP cognac. The original cognac bottle, known as the “charentaise”, dates back to the mid-19th century. Rebranding for the 200th version came in the form of a mod new design — a tribute to its heritage. Hennessy has reimagined the architectural, slope-shouldered charentaise in a limited-edition carafe, complete with a special-edition bottle and gift box set.

Now, when the head of Mot Hennessy visits The Rock, what better way to fte him than with a soire at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel? J Wray & Nephew (JWN) and the Mot Hennessy team on The Rock threw a fashionably apropos-themed bash at the Regency.

It's no secret that Hennessy is a gentleman's cognac, and naturally, the gents were out to celebrate and imbibe their favourite blend: Hennessy VSOP, which paired beautifully with assorted crustacean classics. Entertainment was provided by Third Dimension's principal Kamal Bankay and the acclaimed disc jock Bishop Escobar.

Don't blame the Henny for your mid-week layover, Wednesday Social parties with the in-crowd.
