“I’m really interested in human emotion. It was the first thing I wanted to manifest through my tattoos. I can still remember the day I first went to my tattoo artist and out of all tattoos I chose a smiling face. It looks so mysterious. Sometimes I wonder whether the smile is heartfelt or a bit ironic. But does it really matter? At the end of the day, it’s all part of the game called life; sadness included. It was in such a moment that I decided to have my second tattoo. This time it was different − I chose a serious face, probably sad. All these feelings are a part of me; a part of everybody.

It was those contrasting feelings that I wanted to reflect in my drink. Our face, the palette that depicts our feelings. Hennessy, the ideal base to highlight those contrasting flavors.”
