Today Cognac Godet is the story of a father and his three sons who are continuing a family legacy, passed down from generation to generation for over 400 years. The adventure begins in La Rochelle, where the family’s two greatest passions meet, the Ocean and Cognac.There, surrounded by oak casks and reaching back 15 generation, we maintain our family secrets, explore the deeper meaning of cognac, and take pleasure in recounting ancestral drinking tales.
LA ROCHELLE: THE CRADLE OF COGNAC
La Rochelle holds a unique position in the History of Cognac because this is the place where distillation technology (originating from the Arab culture) met with locally produced wine (The wine of Aunis).It gave birth to cognac’s first expression, known as “Dutch burnt wine”, which became “British brandy” in the 18th century and later the “French Cognac” of the 19th century.Bonaventure Godet, a Dutch salt merchant settled in La Rochelle in the second ½ of the 16th century, and was among the first traders of ”Dutch burnt wine“ that would become so sought after for the centuries to come.15 generations later, it is in this same location that the same family continues artful craft of transforming nature into culture. Enjoying a unique cellaring environment with the humid & salty air of the Atlantic Ocean, the Godet House nurtures its barrels with the ocean as the secret ingredient that gives birth to refined & singular cognacs.
*COGNAC GODET: handmade and rare cognacs *
