15 local mixologists share their original cocktail recipes using Hennessy V.S and V.S.O.P Privilège

by Grace Sundram

During the unprecedented global Covid-19 pandemic, Hennessy stood in solidarity with 1,000 selected bartenders from around the world, many of whom had lost their sources of income, by providing them with cash incentives to encourage them to stay creative and connected during the lockdown. In return, these bartenders came up with their own original cocktails using two of Hennessy’s iconic offerings – Hennessy V.S and Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège.

In Malaysia, 15 bartenders from various establishments were selected to participate in this CSR initiative. Here are their original creations. The next time you’re in the mood for a post-MCO beverage, head on to these outlets and try out their original creations for yourself.
