Legendary New York MC Nas visited Hennessy's headquarters in Cognac, France. The rapper journeyed to the factory for an extensive tour of its vineyards and distillery, and was even given a chance to create his own blend of Henny.

"I feel honored to be here. It's definitely something that opened my mind up about life, in general," the rapper stated.

"It also shows how someone like myself...who comes from New York City, came from the streets...I can relate to guys that are from Cognac, France. [...] Shows that you can do anything in life, you know?"

A series of videos were uploaded to the company's YouTube account, including the extensive interview with Nas regarding his experience at the headquarters included above.

Jones also had the unparalleled experience of tasting Hennessy from the year 1900, which he described as "really good".
