The Fine Champagne region, or the two neighboring crus, are highly reputed in the Cognac world. They are known for producing the finest of Cognacs, thanks to a unique geological make-up of the earth in this maritime climate. The high chalk content means that the soil drains easily; producing light and floral eaux-de-vie with a lengthy finish such as that as the Larsen Viking Ocean.
The true story behind Viking Ship Ocean Cognac
It is only fitting that the Viking Ocean Cognac should be in the shape of a ship. Jens Reidar Larsen set out to the Americas aged 24, eager to explore the world, but a stopover in Bordeaux seemingly changed the course of his path and destiny. He found a job in a town famous for its eaux-de-vie, and subsequently fell in love with a local girl. His new adventure began in the town of Cognac. He learned the secrets of the cellar masters and explored the treasures of eaux-de-vie, creating Larsen Cognac in 1926.

About Larsen Cognac
Known as ‘The Cognac of Vikings,’ Larsen Cognac has striven to produce and offer products of high quality at selected points of sale throughout the world.
A family run concern, the story of Cognac Larsen dates back to 1926 when Jens Reidar Larsen made the move from his home country of Norway to France. Seduced by the quality of the brandy that came from the town of Cognac, he devoted much time and effort to become a connoisseur in the subject, and naturally progressed to owning and running his own Cognac house.
Today, Larsen Cognacs are as well known for their luxury packaging as the quality of their eaux-de-vie, with Limoges Porcelain and Baccarat Crystal featuring strongly with many of their premium Cognacs.
