In 1919 the Norwegian born Jens Reidar Larsen planned his trip to America with a stopover in France. However France was the end of the 24-year-olds adventure and he never made it to America. A few years later in 1926 Larson purchased a Cognac company from Joseph Gautier and then founded his own company called "Le Cognac of the Vikings" SA. Larsen also married a girl from Cognac which firmly set his roots in France and went on to produce two children who also joined the family business. Larson quickly deepened his knowledge into its ingredients and preparation. The distillery is only slightly north of Bordeaux, in Cognac, France and is well known for fine eaux-de-vie (the spirits official full name) and is one of the more recent distilleries of its kind. Their superior products made a substantial impact in the international Cognac market and has secured a substantial proportion of the market.
Since the beginning the unique Larsen Cognac is known for its fruity and fresh aromas. This is ensured by a special distillation process which go through the wines quickly and without sediments. Thus they retain their grape flavors and let the finest eaux-de-vie arise. To this end wines from the regions of Cognac, Fins Bois (Fins Bois eaux-de-vies are characterized by their floral, fruity softness which adds good complexity and body to blends, but without the structure to age well as an exclusive cru blend) and Grande Champagne (Grande Champagne is a district, called a cru, known for its Cognac. It produces the finest Cognacs in a zone of 34703 hectares, of which 17% is dedicated to production of Cognac) are used. Then the best part is transferred to the tire in Limousine oak barrels that contribute significantly to the flawless character and superb flavor formation of the Larsen VSOP Cognac. The Larsen VSOP Cognac is a mature Cuvee from five to eight year old Cognacs which is filled with special care by the Master Blender.
Meanwhile the Larsen Cognac is now made and marketed by the third generation Larson and still is pays attention to use of traditional methods and recipes for the production of Cognac. These guarantee a particularly noble quality which Larsen is known for since the outset. Larson Cognac is easily identified by its extraordinary and exceptional bottle shapes and the Viking ship which proudly adorns each bottle and is an ideal addition to an upmarket Cognac collection and makes a gift that will be cherished.
