Sensitive to the demands of the experience generation, Hennessy USA was keen to attract a new audience to it’s premium cognac range by using brand education that was more engaging than instructional.


The concept was to create an experiential journey through the five key savoir-faire chapters of Hennessy cognac making. Le Grand Voyage was an immersive, sensorial experience built in Brooklyn, New York, where education and art met, allowing the guests to travel through place and time to appreciate a 250-year dynasty of cognac tradition.
