On February 18, Hennessy X.O will celebrate the Lunar New Year and usher in the Year of the Ox with the virtual event X.O OX Experience on Facebook Live.

Hennessy Global Ambassador Henry Golding, along with special correspondent AtomicMari, will host the event that has the theme of hope and resilience — two things we all could use. The X.O OX Experience will feature special performances from Jay Park, Dumbfounded, Year of the Ox, MILCK, and the dance crew Kinjaz. In addition, filmmaker and restaurateur Eddie Huang will share his favorite Lunar New Year dish, which pairs well with the X.O and V.S.O.P Privilège cocktails Cari Hah will be mixing during the event. Hennessy X.O intends for the occasion to inspire a sense of optimism for the coming year.
