Hennessy, the world’s best-selling cognac, and the National Basketball Association (NBA) (www.NBA.com) today announced a global expansion of their partnership, making Hennessy “the official spirit of the NBA” in the whole world. The multi-year deal, which marks the league’s first-ever global partnership with a spirits brand, ushers in the next chapter in Hennessy’s relationship with the NBA and expands the North American deal (https://on.nba. com / 2NZm5l7) which was announced in February 2020.
“We are honored with this distinction as the first global spiritual partner in NBA history,” said Julie Nollet, World CMO of Hennessy. “The NBA is more than basketball, and Hennessy is more than brandy. We represent global communities, and this partnership allows us to support a game and culture that brings people together through fun and camaraderie despite the current challenges facing fans around the world. We share the core NBA values of integrity, teamwork, respect and innovation, which are more powerful than ever as we work to inspire and unite people around the world.
“This partnership expansion marks an exciting milestone for the league as Hennessy becomes the first ever NBA Spirits Global Partner,” said Dan Rossomondo, NBA senior vice president, Media and Business Development. “We look forward to continuing to celebrate basketball alongside this iconic brand and our fans around the world.”
The expanded partnership will take off in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe and South America with the launch of an adaptation of the “Hennessy x NBA: Lines” campaign (https://bit.ly/2ZNT12z) that celebrates those who push the game forward.
