MEMBERS of the newly launched Golden Network, a new community aimed at the finance industry, galvanised their support last night when it put on a Hennessy Cognac tasting at McQueen in Shoreditch. City goers from the likes of Santander, RBS and JP Morgan and others popped along to taste the distiller’s finest with Mo√ęt brand manager Max Helm. The Capitalist learned lots; that 80 per cent of the world’s Cognac is consumed with mixers, what it’s like to work for the Korean wealth fund (hard to turn on your computer with a Korean keyboard apparently) and that networking is a lot more fun when there’s cognac involved.
