A Gift to be Treasured this Chinese New Year: Hennessy’s Exquisite limited-edition V.S.O.P and X.O for the Chinese New Year are the perfect gift to welcome the Year of the Dragon

The Dragon in traditional Chinese culture symbolizes luck, honor, power, and success. It is the supernatural epitome for talent and excellence. It’s no wonder that Hennessy — the world’s largest producer of Cognac, and the undisputed “king” of this luxurious sipping spirit — would celebrate the power of the dragon this Chinese New Year with limited-edition V.S.O.P and X.O Limited Edition bottles featuring these mythical beings in collaboration with the visionary artist Yang Yong Liang.

Yang Yong Liang is a Chinese-born artist whose body of work is inspired by his ancestral culture and the famous Shan Shui. He is a painter with digital photography as his medium. In Yang’s work, the dragons are free, full of vigor and wisdom. Rather than fear, they inspire awe and reverence. 

“I was born in a strange place,” Yang shared. “When I went to shoot in my hometown with Hennessy’s team, I went to some places I used to go when I was a child and found dragon totems everywhere. Perhaps, these elements and images were subtly flowing in my blood as I grew up.” He confessed that he believed that the dragon actually existed, but we just can’t see them anymore. “So for me, it’s a mysterious and familiar thing.” 

The dragons Yang has designed with Hennessy are a bit different from his previous works. “I made a few changes to Hennessy’s because I wanted to be closer to the modern aesthetic taste and habits, so I created a new state,” he confessed. “I think the concept of ‘dragon’ has a perfect fit with Hennessy,” he added, “because dragons were actually water gods in ancient China. For me, Hennessy is a mysterious liquid from ancient times, and I feel there is a deep connection between the two. So when they came to me, I felt quite excited about this project.”
