Braastad, like many Cognac houses its founders have a connection to Norway.
“Just two months short of his 100th birthday, Sverre Braastad passed away on May 16th 1979. He had worked hard all his life, but fuelled by his passion for cognac and the love for this family, his life became a long and eventful one. In his time he saw members of the Braastad family at the helm of world-famous cognac houses, such as Delamain, Courvoisier, Salignac, and Bisquit. The Braastads are still in charge of their true House of Cognac, doing everything from harvesting grapes, producing wine, distilling cognac and maturing the noble, golden liquid for generations in their own, humid cellars by the river Charente in the heart of Cognac.
