All I Want For Christmas ... is a BIG Bottle of Henny :)

Tuesday I headed to the Ritz Carlton in Buckhead for the Moet Hennessy Holiday Preview:

I was greeted by a beautiful model who escorted me to a beautiful suite with a huge spread of breads, cheeses, fruits, hummus etc... and lots and lots and lots of liquor.

I have to give it the Moet/Hennessy marketing department because they clearly put a lot of thought into the packaging, and even came up with some inventive things like chillers for their Grand Marnier and a new mojito flavored lip balm from 10 Cane rum.

I definitely appreciated the personal attention from Moet Hennessy reps Cassondra and Trisha (who awed me with her detailed explanation of the process that goes into making a fine bottle of Glenmorangie).

So yeah, if you're stumped on what to get me this holiday season you can't go wrong with some Navan Natural Vanilla Liqueur, a Dom Perignon "Love" Gift Box or if you're feeling especially like indulging me -- the $200,000 Hennessy Beaute Du Siecle -- a literal treasure chest of alumninum and Murano glass that houses a bottle of Hennessy along with a set of cognac glasses, the Beaute du Siecle book and an original print.

Special thanks to Caroline Sweet!
