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.
"Very Special" is the youngest cognac in Godet's range. A blend of several crus, it is double distilled and aged in French oak casks. Lively and fruity, it reveals pear and leather notes on the nose.
It is a direct descendant of La Rochelle (Burnt-Wine), which was already shipped by Bonaventure Godet on his galleon in the 16th Century. This VS epitomises the inventive side of the first cognac distillers who literally burnt their wines to preserve its quality. They discovered that this eau-de-vie once in oak barrel, greatly improved as time passed. These were the beginnings of the story of Cognac.
