Hennessy Cognac has opened a new shop-in-shop in Terminal 1 of Singapore Changi Airport in partnership with Lotte Duty Free and Changi Airport Group (CAG), spotlighting The Singapore Edition, which joins The Spirit of Travel Collection.

 

The new activation promises to deliver ‘the ultimate expression of Hennessy’s savoir-faire’ and offers shoppers at Changi an opportunity to explore the world of Cognac in a ‘true playground of discovery’.

 

At the new installation, the LVMH-owned Cognac brand showcases the latest addition to the Hennessy X.O. The Spirit of Travel Collection; The Singapore Edition.

 

The collection, which has been created exclusively for travellers, pays tribute to five iconic holiday destinations; Paris, Hainan, Macau, Hong Kong, and now, Singapore.

 

The new sku celebrates the first shipments of Hennessy to Singapore in 1893, and features the city’s major landmarks on its limited-edition packaging.

According to Hennessy, for Cognac connoisseurs and collectors, the opportunity to purchase Hennessy Paradis and Richard Hennessy – two of the brand’s most sought-after and rarest expressions – is a major reason for visiting the Hennessy Shop in Shop at Singapore Changi.
