I stopped by Mel and Rose yesterday to check out the Hennessy x Futura bottle signing event and get in on the action. When I arrived, there was a congregation of people wrapped around the building and even more lingering inside. Most were draped in daytime cocktail attire, waiting patiently in line to get their bottle of Hennessy signed by Futura, the notorious NY graffiti artist, himself. I made my way through the crowd and into the room wherein Futura was sitting. The artist assumed his guest of honor role and signed a bottle for each fan after the next.
What makes the Hennessy x Futura bottle such a rare breed is that solely 200,000 of them exist worldwide. The Cognac bottle features Futura’s graphics, splashed with bold colors and a gold emblem of his signature helix, making the finished product a prized art piece. Especially for those that attended the event, the bottle is representative of an intimate meeting with the legendary artist. I enjoyed witnessing the fusion of the Hennessy and Street Art realms. Keep your eyes peeled for this alcoholic art piece in stockists near you.
