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’s a closer look of the King of the Road
This jeep will be used in their promotion and also in events

The Habal-Habal, named after the “one-person jeepney”, was a drink that used black pepper infused Hennessy VS, coupled with bay leaf, honey, calamansi, and ginger beer, served in a highball glass.
Patok, got its name from the loud, fast and colorful jeepneys. Here he infused Hennessy VS with siling labuyo, complemented with honey, calamansi, and a dash of white vinegar.
Side Trip, a play on a classic cognac cocktail the Side Car. He used Hennessy VS and paired it with white chocolate, hibiscus syrup, calamansi, and foamed egg white, served up with sprayed-on Angostura and Peychauds graffiti
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.
