Hennessy, the world’s best-selling Cognac, is proud to release an epic short film by legendary director Ridley Scott, who visualizes the odyssey experienced in every sip of Hennessy X.O. The campaign was created by advertising agency DDB Paris, creative partner of Hennessy. The luxury spirits brand also announced that a 60-second version of “The Seven Worlds” will air during a commercial break for the 91st Oscars® telecast on February 24, 2019, amplifying the cinematic flair of the campaign on one of Hollywood’s most celebrated nights.
Complementing the idea that “Each drop of Hennessy X.O. is an Odyssey,” the Oscar® nominated director of The Martian and Gladiator, as well as cult films Alien and Blade Runner, creates a visual journey that explores the blend’s seven flavor profiles in a surreal, sensorial and immersive narrative. The film is a creative interpretation of each of the seven tasting notes, described by Hennessy’s Comité de Dégustation as illustrations of Hennessy X.O’s taste and feel: Sweet Notes, Rising Heat, Spicy Edge, Flowing Flame, Chocolate Lull, Wood Crunches; culminating in Infinite Echo.
