Hennessy launched today a new limited edition cocktail kit — the Hennessy X.O 49 Commemorative Cocktail Set — to celebrate the trailblazing and boundary-breaking achievements of the first Black-American, first South Asian-American, and first female Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris.
The commemorative cocktail set includes everything necessary to mix up The 49th, a sophisticated combination of tangy pomegranate, floral hibiscus, and Hennessy X.O, the world’s original Extra Old Cognac. The Hennessy X.O 49 Commemorative Cocktail Set arrives in celebratory packaging that contains a 750 ml bottle of Hennessy X.O, custom ice mold with display tray, hibiscus and pomegranate teas, oranges for garnish, and glassware etched with the historic number 49, another allusion to Harris being the 49th Vice President of the United States. The kit is available on CoctailCourier.com for $259.99. You’re sure to continue using the truly elegant wine glasses and Hennessy X.O Ice Tray, which makes four faceted ice cubes and is available separately for $6.99 on sale.
To honor Vice President Harris as the first graduate of an HBCU to ascend to the Executive Office, Hennessy has pledged an additional donation to its long-term partner Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF), in support of more Black women advancing to the C-Suite level. TMCF is the largest organization in the U.S. solely representing the Black College Community, and its member schools include publicly-supported HBCUs and Predominantly Black Institutions.
With the Hennessy X.O 49 Commemorative Cocktail Set, you can raise a glass of The 49th to all the trailblazers who paved the path before you this Black History Month.
