Hennessy crowns Philippine jeepney as the King of the Road

DSC_0250

In celebration of Manila urban lifestyle, Hennessy unveiled this awesome cool pinoy jeepney, its like a party bus, but it’s a custom built jeepney.


This is a symbol of what Hennessy stand in our local culture. We know that Hennessy as the best cognac in the world, travel across the globe to embrace what the local culture, tradition and historical symbol of a certain country.

From what I learned, Hennessy is not just your ordinary cognac that can be paired with the usual food and international cuisine. Here are the Hennessy King of the Road event, they showcased that the Hennessy can be paired to our local food, we joined the taste test and Im very happy with the turn out because there’s a new flavor to patronize.

Hennessy tastes good on the rocks, it’s the only alcoholic drink that I can drink with no added concoctions. Also Hennessy made me learn how to drink moderately.

Here are the food that we paired with the new cocktails with Hennessy.

They may look an ordinary local food, but the preparation and its cooking method is a bit different compare to the traditional food we know.
