Hennessy together with St Regis Kuala Lumpur recently presented an exquiste dining experience with Swiss Michelin Star Chef, Andreas Caminada and Chef Skibba.
We were invited to the guest star chef series, where we sampled Chef Caminada and Chef Skibba’s four-course menu, paired with premium cognac, Hennessy X.O and Hennessy V.S.O.P special cocktails, at The Brasserie, St. Regis Kuala Lumpur.
Each course was served simultaneously in the centre of the table on different plates for sharing. “Our aim is to create a sophisticated social experience, which is what appeals to the modern guest and we are thrilled to be bringing our concept to Kuala Lumpur”, says Caminada.

Hennessy Very Special
Hennessy Very Special is a reflection of Hennessy’s unique savoir-faire. The result of an exacting process of selection to find balanced eaux-de-vie of subtle and refined character, its timeless flavours are a continuing source of pleasure for cognac connoisseurs.
Great care is taken in selecting the most harmoniously balanced eaux-de-vie – those best able to reveal their full potential over a relatively short time. They are then aged for the greater part in new French oak barrels, which bring a distinctly toasty character. Combining a generous, fruity nature with notes of brown sugar and crème brûlée, this is a highly nuanced yet intensely expressive cognac. The palate reveals notes of Bourbon vanilla, toast, almond and vine fruits. Hennessy Very Special can be enjoyed on its own, over ice or in a mixed drink.
