The ancestor of the Cognac Larsen


The House Joseph Gautier & Fils was a well-known cognac house, now defunct. Created in 1886 by the eponymous Joseph Gautier, the company was the owner of the "Ibis" brand. A noble bird, which it used as its official logo. Joseph was a huge travel enthusiast and he ambitioned to only use the best French eaux-de-vie possible for his cognacs, in order to show the entire European continent what France had to offer.

In 1926, the house was bought by Jens Reidar Larsen, a 31-years-old Norwegian sailor who landed in Bordeaux before settling in the Cognac region with his wife. After the buyout, he renamed the business "Cognac Larsen". He was famous for his beautiful drakkar-shaped bottles, which earned his brand the nickname of the "Viking Cognac". In 2012, Jens' grandson Frédéric Larsen sold the family company to the giant spirits group Rémy-Cointreau. The latter in turn sold the Larsen brand to the Finnish group Altia the following year.
