First Sydney Hennessy Artistry in 2012 at Marquee

September 12th, 2012

Following on from the success of the official Australian launch in April this year, Hennessy Artistry - The Global Art of Mixing, came back, bigger and better than ever. On Thursday 6th of September, I got to see the world’s No. 1 selling cognac and international music talents come together to create an unforgettable music event at Sydney’s newest nightclub, Marquee.

To kick-off Hennessy Artistry in Sydney, Hennessy welcomed a spectacular blend of live music from international and Australian talents: triple-platinum-selling pop and R&B sensation, Timomatic; Sydney-sider and acclaimed ‘Better Dayz’ rapper, Miracle; Malaysia’s finest DJ and ‘Diva of the South’ Eva T. and flying in from Melbourne, Australia’s wild child DJ, Andy Murphy.

These diverse artistes came together for an exceptional, once in a lifetime event, to seamlessly blend their various musical styles live on stage. In addition to the great music, Hennessy Artistry also provided an excellent occasion to discover the mixability of Hennessy V.S.O.P (delicious!!), with a selection of five mixed drinks on offer including: Hennessy Berry, Hennessy Apple, Hennessy Ginger (love ginger), Hennessy Citrus and Hennessy Soda.

Hennessy’s Australian Brand Manager, Damon Ross-Walker, said: “Hennessy Artistry is all about the blending of musical and artistic talents from different genres and cultures, and is a celebration of how Hennessy Cognac is created – a blend of many different eaux-de-vie. Hennessy Artistry has a long tradition of showcasing and collaborating with new and emerging talents. We are thrilled to be able to bring together this line up of artistes to the audience in Australia.”

There will be two more Hennessy Artistry events in Australia before the year is out.

Hennessy has been promoting Hennessy Artistry since 2006 through impressive and memorable music experiences in the major cities of the world such as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Moscow, Hong Kong, Taipei, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing, Ho Chi Min City, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo – making it the true pioneer of global music scene and the art of mixing.

I urge you to get down there and check out the amazing garments on display… They really are so incredible and really do show you the versatility of wool.
