Limited Edition by Larsen Cognac: Drakkar 70th Anniversary designed by Chuan Jia
When the expertise of cognac production, the excellence of Limoges porcelain, and a respected Chinese artist come together, something extraordinary happens! This is the case with Larsen Cognac, which is thrilled to announce its 70th Anniversary Limited Edition of the renowned Drakkar bottle. This vessel, modeled like a ship, has been a significant part of cognac history since its introduction in 1952, with nearly 100,000 special edition bottles adorning the homes of spirit enthusiasts throughout the decades.
The Drakkar bottles symbolize the Nordic roots of Jens-Reidar Larsen, the forward-thinking founder of Larsen cognac house. The inaugural Drakkar bottle was crafted during a period of increasing growth and demand for cognac. Advancements in the glass and porcelain sectors led to the creation of this distinctive bottle, which soon gained iconic status in the world of cognac.
A mere 300 bottles make up the new 70th anniversary edition, highlighting the significance of the Chinese market to Larsen while encapsulating the brand's fundamental principles. Through a partnership with esteemed artist Chuan Jia, Larsen has effectively bridged the gap between art and the universe of cognac.
Guided by the proficient hand of Chuan Jia, Larsen's Drakkar metamorphoses into an enthralling art piece titled "Boudless Harmony". Abstract cloud formations dive into an aquatic realm, embellished with lavish details in 24-carat gold. Chuan Jia has cleverly integrated abstract representations of swimmers, marine life, and symbols associated with cognac consumption, such as glasses and barrels.
However, what sets this edition apart is more than just its exterior. Each bottle conceals a taste sensation: XO Fine Champagne. This exquisite combination of eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne vineyards, renowned for their superb quality, provides a memorable sensory journey, marked by its distinctive soft fruit flavors and charming floral notes. Every taste is an invitation to appreciate the elegance and subtlety of Larsen's mastery.
Larsen continues to uphold its tradition of quality and innovation, presenting spirit enthusiasts with an unmatched experience. By amalgamating the proficiency of Larsen's Master Blender with Chuan Jia's artistic flair, this Limited Edition embodies the soul of the cognac house, making it a genuine gem for connoisseurs to possess.
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.
