Bartenders To Showcase Winning Cocktails At Selected Bars Via Upcoming Hennessy Cocktail Trail
Malaysia – Launched in 2020, HennessyMyWay is a global initiative by The Maison, Hennessy. HennessyMyWay is a campaign that supports and celebrates the bartending community’s passion and craft in producing expressive cocktails. According to its Press Release, the third installment in the annual series challenged bartenders globally to create and submit their version of a sustainable cocktail using any Hennessy cognac. The versatile appeal of Hennessy’s range makes it ideal for creating any cocktail and gives bartenders the flexibility to get expressive with their creations.
“We are ecstatic to see the bartenders get creative and rise to the occasion given that this year’s challenge of creating a sustainable cocktail is still a fairly new concept in this space. We feel bartenders have also done an exceptional job in showcasing the many different ways Hennessy can be enjoyed,” says Thomas Bouleuc, Managing Director of Moët Hennessy Diageo Malaysia and Singapore.
“With each passing year, we are more impressed with the amazing talent pool across Malaysia. Every bartender has taken their own unique approach to the challenge which is why we are looking forward to bringing these sustainable cocktails to our consumers as part of the upcoming ‘Hennessy Cocktail Trail’,” Bouleuc went on to say.
