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.

Courvoisier has been passionately handcrafting the finest cognac since the reign of Napoleon. Balancing century old techniques with a commitment to innovate, 'Le Voyage De Napoleon' is an exclusive travel retail edition of the bestselling Courvoisier VSOP in celebration of Napoleon's travels and historical significance.
Napoleon held Courvoisier in such high regard that a legend has it, he chose Courvoisier as one of the few items of luxury when he was sent into exile. Thus Courvoisier received the name 'The Cognac of Napoleon', a title that proudly adorns every bottle to this day.
Cognac VSOP - 'Very Special Old Pale' - denotes a blend of which the youngest contribution is matured for at least four years (but much longer in this case), producing a cognac that is enjoyed by many and acknowledged by many more to be the world's finest cognac. An excellent alternative for those who appreciate a less dry, lighter style, Courvoisier VSOP is ideal for food pairing, and is best enjoyed with a dash of water for full flavour appreciation.
