Gautier Cognac

Gautier Cognac is amongst the oldest cognac houses, with a very unique location. Gautier is based in Aigre on the Osme river, and ages in an 18th century water mill. Aigre is also referred to as the "Little Venice" of Charente. The proximity to the water and the resulting humidity and temperature in the cellars gives the cognac a recognizable taste. This cognac house unites ancient history with a modern view on the cognac market. It caters both professional cognac connoisseurs and aficionados as well as younger consumers that like to experiment with cognac and try out new and trendy cocktails.

    To whom it may concern:


    I have a boxed and unopened bottle of your fishermans float xo cognac which my father in law purchased many years ago in singapore I believe.


    It was brought out recently and I am interested in the current value of such a bottle.


    Kind regards


    Nick

Initially, the location was chosen because of the water power running the machinery.
