Exclusive Paradis Impérial Cognac Tastings
Quintessentially has partnered with Hennessy, the legendary French Maison de Cognac, to curate bespoke and intimate experiential tastings and four-course dinners that celebrate its ultra-refined expression: Paradis Impérial.
Bringing together select Quintessentially Members and Cognac connoisseurs, Hennessy, which has been crafting the world’s finest Cognacs since 1765, is able to indulge invités to a culinary moment like no other. The dinners, which so far have taken place in New York and at Art Basel Miami Beach, are contemporary gastronomic evenings with the eau-de-vie’s “Made of Precision” leitmotif – front and centre.
At the Art Basel Miami Beach event last year, in the penthouse of the Residences at The Miami Beach EDITION, Hennessey and Quintessentially tapped Grimanesa Amorós, a Peruvian light artist based in New York City, to co-host the event.
“Precision, a word I love is part of my life and my work, the lighting must be extremely precise,” reasoned the artist, who is known for immersive, large-scale light sculpture and light installations around the world. “For me, the evening was a romance with the Unknown; a wonderful opportunity to learn and discover behind-the scene the creation of Paradis Impérial.”This spring will see the collaboration continue to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Houston.
