Godet is a long-running, family owned Cognac house based in La Rochelle, who can trace their production history back to 1782, when 7th generation family member Gédéon Godet registered the name as a trading company.

Godet survived the Phylloxera outbreak of the mid-18th Centruy, though did have to move some of their vineyards as a result. During the Second World War, Godet was sequestered by the German forces knowing of Jacques Godet"„¢s resistance activities. However, he saved the best bottles of their Cognac by instructing the store manager to bury the bottles in the garden!

During the 1980s, they were purchased by Grand Metropolitan (who would eventually form part of Diageo), though it was bought back during the 1990s. Godet continues to produce Cognac today, with 15th generation family member Jean Edouard Godet joining the company.

An excellent 25 year old brandy made from Eaux-de-vie from Borderies, and Grande and Petite Champagnes.
