Hennessy began celebrating when it unveiled its 250th anniversary logo early in the year and set the ball in motion towards the November celebration events.

Also planned is the unveiling of a 250 blend – a special anniversary edition of the cognac which will be sold to a premium number of guests – only 360 bottles would be available in Nigeria.

Still in the works is what the organisers are calling 'The Time Barrel' which is the essence of the anniversary's theme.This will feature messages from lovers of the brand, stored through an interactive time capsule for future generations.

“The Time Barrel” invites everyone to “send a message to the future”, promoting Hennessy’s unique traditions of art, music and culture – The time barrel is a perpetual transmission of Hennessy’s evolution since 1765, and that of its consumers, what they believe in and stand for, from one generation to the next.
