Hennessy has welcomed multi-disciplinary artist Ryan McGinness as the designer of the new Hennessy V.S Limited Edition bottle. McGinness’ take on the iconic Hennessy V.S label features a distinctive radiant pattern in fluorescent colors that glow under black light, and is now available for purchase online and at select wine & spirits retailers nationwide.
Known for using the visual language of contemporary symbology, the New York-based McGinness is credited with elevating the status of the icon to fine art. His works have been exhibited in museums around the world.
The new Hennessy V.S Limited Edition is the fifth in a series that has included critically acclaimed artists, KAWS, Futura, Os Gemêos and Shepard Fairey, the collaboration with McGinness is a perfect embodiment of Hennessy’s 250 years of dedication to the art of blending.

The Hennessy V.S Limited Edition Deluxe set features two individually numbered 750ml bottles with different adaptations of the design by the artist in black and fluorescent colors on a black background.
