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.
In March 2008, Jean Jacques Godet embarked on a sailing trip to Antarctica accompanied by 10 crew members. They landed on the Antarctic continent 70° south of the equator. Never has such a small yacht succeeded in docking at such a level and a world record was broken. In honour of the accomplishment, Cognac Godet has created a unique cognac inspired by the purity and beauty of Antarctica. The first cognac to be consumed as an aperitif at below zero temperature. Icy white quality, 40% vol and aged in Godet's oldest oak casks.
Keep the bottle in your freezer. Serve ice cold, on the rocks or as a shot.
