Hennessy : A Toast to the World's Preeminent Spirit (Hardcover) (Glenn O'Brien)
About this item
The ultimate bar book, from the world’s finest cognac producer. Lavishly illustrated, this is the first book on the world’s most famous cognac producer. In 1765, Irish aristocrat Richard Hennessy, who had been serving in the French forces, founded an eaux-de-vie trading business in Cognac. Hennessy was soon considered a benchmark of excellence and its blends have become icons of refinement and luxury.In Pass the Henny, renowned writer Glenn O’Brien invites the reader to discover the history of cognac. The highly entertaining text, filled with extraordinary events and O’Brien’s irresistible humor, is married with classic cocktail recipes and evocative imagery that conveys the lifestyle of the Hennessy connoisseur through the ages, from the bohemian jazz culture of Paris in the 1930s and the Mad Men of the 1960s to today’s stars of hip-hop. Featuring contributions from such cultural luminaries as Shepard Fairey, Nas, Futura, Fab 5 Freddy, and Ryan McGinness, as well as never-before-seen images from the Hennessy archive, Pass the Henny is an informative and engaging account of the world’s most revered brandy and a book that belongs on every cognac enthusiast's shelf."
