Maison Hennessy was pleased to host the Global Brand
Ambassador Mr. Ben Smith on his second visit to Kenya
Together with Mr. Alexandre Helaine, Moët Hennessy Eastern Africa Market Manager, Mr. Smith met cognac lovers for a fine dining experience which gave all the guests an immersion into the rich heritage, finesse and sophistication of Maison Hennessy at the Soi Restaurant, Dusit D2, Nairobi.
Mr. Smith took attendees through the rich history and ‘savoir-faire’ of Hennessy, a truly global adventure dipped in the history of French origin that started in 1765. Speaking at the event, Mr. Smith mentioned that, “With 1st shipments traced back to 1898, Hennessy has a long history in Kenya. Today Kenya is one of the most dynamic countries in the world for Hennessy, with exciting new occasions and venues attracting diverse consumers to the brand. The entrepreneurial energy is obvious in Kenya and blends well with the DNA of Hennessy.”
The Global Brand Ambassador used the stages of a 3-course fine dining meal to let the cognac lovers sip and savor the different pearls on the Hennessy crown. They were able to learn and taste the great cognacs of Maison Hennessy; the Very Special (VS), Very Superior Old Pale (VSOP) and of course the ultimate Extra Old (X.O) accompanied by stories of how each name came to be.
