Here at Gilt Home, we’re major proponents of the elevated bar. After all, life is too short to drink from boring bottles or out of terrible glasses. Thankfully, our friends over at Gilt City agree on this point, and they’re offering access to one of the coolest incarnations of this raise-the-bar mantra we’ve seen in quite awhile: the Hennessy “Very Special” (V.S) Limited Edition by Shepard Fairey Deluxe Set.
The set — designed by Fairey, the activist/artist/DJ extraordinaire — includes one bottle each of Hennessy V.S Limited Edition Gold and Silver Label and V.S Limited Edition Red and Silver Label cognac, as well as commemorative stickers and a keepsake booklet that goes into detail on this artistic collaboration (in which Fairey blended his iconic style with Hennessy’s historic imagery). The result is a pretty stunning balance of old and new. Says the artist: “Whether in Cognac or in art, we both continuously push ourselves to pursue excellence, working years and years to hone and perfect our crafts.”
Head to Gilt City and RSVP to get the set on ReserveBar.com; it costs $150, and includes shipping — plus, you’ll get a $30 credit for merchandise on Gilt! Get clicking, and get that summer cocktail party invite list going.
