The boutique houses the Jamaica launch of the ‘Hennessy Art of Gifting’. Available in a few key locations globally, the experience allows customers to personalise their Hennessy X.O and Hennessy X.X.O purchases by adding Jamaica-inspired medallions and pendants to the bottles.
An inauguration event featuring a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on 27 April with representatives from Moët Hennessy and Dufry in attendance.
