In the great pantheon of liquors, Hennessy holds an almost cult-like status among drinkers. Produced in Cognac, France for the past 250 years, the brown liquor has inspired everyone from 2Pac to Jay Z to Kanye West to Drake. Now, following a rash of food and beverage-related burglaries in recent weeks, desperate fans are apparently willing go to any length to get their hands on a super-sized bottle of the “magic juice.”
Last week, a thief swiped a 2-foot-tall bottle of Hennessy XO Cognac from a commercial building in Foxboro, Massachusetts, the Sun Chronicle first reported on Tuesday.
"A bottle that big will be a talking point for some people," Detective Patrick Morrison told the paper.
To make matters even worse, the items were all being stored by Rodman for Kids, a local charity for at-risk youth, which planned to sell the swag at a fundraising auction later this year.
In 2014, $500,000 worth of Hennessy was stolen in Baltimore, though it remains unclear whether any Ravens jerseys were included in the heist.
