Godet Cognac has fifteen generations of family history. Bonaventure Godet, a Dutch merchant, moved to La Rochelle to export salt and Aunis wine, an ancestor of Cognac in 1550. He was one of the first to transform wine into Cognac as we know it today.
Cognac Godet is a 100% family owned, independent business and still based in La Rochelle, the home of Cognac. The Godet House creates a range of Cognacs such as VS, VSOP & XO as well as rare Cognacs. Jean Edouard Godet, the cellar master, selects barrels in order to prevent the wood to take precedence over the fruit and flowers of Cognac. The Godet House raises its cognacs in its cellars along the Atlantic Ocean which gives them a remarkable fullness.
Godet VSOP is a complex and superior VSOP cognac ranked Fine Champagne AOC aged for 14 years in oak casks. It is an exceptional Eau-de-Vie that was created by Augustin Godet in 1838. The first intention was to create the perfect Eaux de Vie for food lovers, hence its appellation Gastronome. On top of being extremely dry and smooth, this cognac is very elegant and fruity. The distillation and aging secrets of the Gastronome Fine Champagne have since remained one of the best kept secrets of the Godet family.
