When Hennessy Very Special announced the latest edition and Toronto launch of its Limited Edition series with a new bottle design created by American tattoo artist Scott Campbell, we were ecstatic. We are big fans of his work and thought it so fortunate that while he'd be in Toronto, he'd be here at Rally. In continuing a legacy of artistic collaboration that spans centuries, the new bottle illustrates the brand's dedication to the art of blending by overlapping two very different, very old traditions: tattoo artistry & Cognac making.
The Limited Edition release is the sixth in an ongoing series between Hennessy V.S and internationally renowned artists, including Ryan McGinness, Shepard Fairey, Os Gemêos, Futura, and KAWS.
For a day in October we welcomed Mr. Scott Campbell, the illustrious Hennessy team and their wonderful guests here to Rally to shake down in celebration. From a pop-up tattoo shop in the front, through a photo exhibition of Scott's process led you over two-levels to the late night music showcase in the lower space.
