The adventures of Jens Reidar Larsen

A young Norwegian, who’s eager to explore the world, leaves his home shore at the age of 24 on a ship destined for the Americas.

But a long stopover in Bordeaux to repair the boat changes his destiny forever. Determined to earn some money before resuming his travels, Jens Reidar quickly finds a job in a small town a little further north, famous for the quality of its eau-de-vie. He meets and subsequently marries a local girl. Thus Cognac becomes his home port. America will have to wait and a new adventure begins.

Before long, Jens Reidar discovers yet another passion, one for cognac and the diversity of its soils. He quickly becomes an expert, learns about the well-kept secrets of the cellar masters and explores the treasure of their cognacs. From this experience, the original signature of Larsen Cognac is born in 1926.
