Rémy Cointreau announced talks with Larsen in October

Rémy Cointreau has signed an agreement to buy Larsen Cognac for an undisclosed sum.

The Paris-based company will acquire the entire share capital of the family-owned Cognac producer, it said yesterday (18 December). The deal is expected to close before the end of this year, a Rémy spokesperson told just-drinks. 

Negotiations over the deal were first publicly revealed in October

Larsen, formed in 1926 by Norwegian Jens Reidar Larsen, has “built up inventories of aged eaux-de-vie that enables the company to guarantee the quality of its production and optimise its purchasing power”, Remy said.

In September, Remy completed its acquisition of Bruichladdich Distillery Company, the Islay-based Scotch whisky producer, for GBP58m (US$90.3m).
