Swear In Obama With a Hennessy 44 Bottle

By

We expect much of New York to be celebrating Barack Obamas inauguration next Tuesday, and so does Hennessy. The cognac-maker is selling a limited-edition bottle (180,000 were produced) in honor of our 44th president. This collector-edition, individually numbered bottle will further cement Hennessys roots in the urban community, with a percentage of proceeds being donated to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to help enable Americas next generation of leaders, said a well-intentioned press release. You can purchase a bottle in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Illinois, New York City, and Georgia for just $30 dollars. The president-elect isnt much of a drinker, but if anythings going to drive you to the liquor cabinet, its being the leader of the free world. He might want to find a different brand, though: North Koreas Kim Jong Il is said to be a huge Hennessy fan. In our hearts, Obama is a whiskey-neat kind of guy.
