Cognac – a Norwegian drink?

Nov 30, 2012

Many of you may think that the only drinks originating from Norway is vodka (or bad moonshine) and aquavit (more about the latter later), but very few know the strong connection between Norway and Cognac. Obviously our climate is too cold for growing grapes, but a large community of Norwegians settled in the southwest of France to develop their favorite drink. Today Norway is the top consuming nation in the world of Cognac per person (in relation to population) – not bad for a country of only 5 million people!

I found this very interesting post from the “Cognac Expert” blog – enjoy and skål!
