Grant Sceney Sends Greetings From Cognac

After winning the Hennessey VS Re fashioned competition recently, Grant 'World Class' Sceney got to visit Cognac in France where he sent this 'postcard.' Here I am in the underground ageing cellar at Hennessy with their barrels. I was with other bartenders from around the world and we were put into teams for a Hennessy mixing session competition; our team won the cocktail of the contest! It's the 250th anniversary cocktail called 'August's Angel' - a riff on an Aviation as we competed in a airplane hangar and were inspired by the 'angels share.' (During the ageing process about three percent of Cognac evaporates; which they call the angels share.)
