J.J. Coppinger’s is proud to announce its collaboration with Hennessy and Cork-based stained glass artist, Peter Martin, for a special cognac tasting & an immersive art experience on Thursday, 12th of September.
Guests will be treated to a Hennessy masterclass sampling the full Hennessy range from VS “Very Special” to XO "Extra Old". A custom-designed stained glass piece reflecting the architectural glory of J.J.Coppinger’s building will be exhibited on the night as the artist discusses the process of making the piece and how it depicts the building’s design. The event is inspired by Hennessy’s longstanding tradition of artistic partnerships.
The building at 55 Main Street, Midleton was designed by architect Augustus Pugin, who was famous for being a strong champion of the gothic revival style of architecture, setting new standards in design. He is known by many as the man that changed the face and the mind of British architecture in works as revered as the House of Lords and the clock tower at Westminster, known as Big Ben. St Mary’s Cathedral in Killarney, Adare Manor and
St Colman's Cathedral in Cobh are arguably his most well-known works in Ireland.
Guests will receive Hennessy & Ginger on arrival, a cocktail made with Cognac, dry apricots, ginger, lemon, and brown sugar and can kick back and relax to some hip-hop beats as the event comes to a close.
Tickets are €10. The event is limited to an audience of 30 people.
