The NBA Does Global Deal with Hennessy

Hennessy, the world-renowned cognac, and the National Basketball Association have announced a global expansion of their partnership, making Hennessy the “Official Spirit of the NBA” worldwide. 

The multi-year agreement, which marks the league’s first-ever global partnership with a spirits brand, ushers in the next chapter of Hennessy’s relationship with the NBA and expands on the North American deal that was announced in February 2020.

“We are honoured by the distinction as the first global spirit partner in the NBA’s history,” said Julie Nollet, Hennessy Global CMO. “The NBA is more than basketball, and Hennessy is more than cognac. We represent global communities, and this partnership empowers us to support a game and culture that brings people together through entertainment and camaraderie despite the current challenges faced by fans around the world.  We share the NBA’s core values of integrity, teamwork, respect and innovation, which are more powerful than ever as we work to inspire and unite people across the globe.”

The expanded partnership gets underway in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe and South America with the launch of an adaptation of the “Hennessy x NBA: Lines” campaign that celebrates those who push the game forward. Fans around the world will be able to toast with new exclusive Hennessy VS and VSOP Limited Edition bottles, specially designed to commemorate the partnership.  The Limited Edition bottles are now available in the U.S., and a worldwide release is planned for the second quarter of 2021.
