Maison Hennessy is launching its first NFTs in partnership with BlockBar.com, featuring Hennessy·8, a blend crafted to honor a time of transition. In 2017, the Maison’s seventh-generation Master Blender, Yann Fillioux, passed the torch to his nephew, Renaud Fillioux de Gironde. To celebrate the occasion, he crafted a highly symbolic blend using one eau-de-vie from each generation of Hennessy Master Blender. Hennessy·8 now enters the NFT dimension with its first and last carafes presented as a dual drop on BlockBar.com.
Five years in the making, Hennessy·8 honors the arrival of a new generation. It is a cognac that embodies 250 years of perpetual reinvention and shared expertise. Numbered 1/250 and 250/250 respectively, these two NFTs present an exclusive opportunity to own remarkable moments in cognac-making history. Maison Hennessy will also open its doors at the Hennessy estate in Cognac, France to the buyer of the NFTs, as a friend of the House.
The NFTs are available exclusively through BlockBar.com. The buyer may choose either to redeem the physical product and have it delivered from BlockBar’s secure storage facility, or to safely trade its NFT version within the BlockBar.com marketplace.
The two Hennessy·8 NFTs are available to one buyer only, priced at 70.47 ETH, approximately $226,450.00. They will drop on Wednesday January 12, 2022 via blockbar.com. At 9:30 am EST. A lobby will open for users; to gain access a user must have 1 ETH in their wallet and have it connected to the site. The NFT may be purchased from BlockBar with Ethereum (ETH) or by credit card.
