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.

    The colour is mahogany, on the nose we note some sweet notes, rich and complex aromas - combined with solid fruit and spices. An intense note of rancio.

New Loyalties !

Greetings, I am a 37 year consumer of cognac previously my favorite was Corvosier. I have purchased and tried many kinds at most every price level. For the past 3 years I have been disappointed with Corvosier. Even the VSOP seems to tast like rubbing alcohol ..I went so far as to write the company after about 14 bottles of this sad experience. Finally I tried Gautier, as the store I frequent began carrying it. I am and have been more than happy with it..even to the point where I am certain I will only try your higher end bottles as my budget permits in times ahead. I just wanted to thank you for producing a great product and know that I gladly recommend your product every chance I get. Keep up the great taste ! Thank you !

      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

        History of Gautier



        It is believed that Charles Gautier started producing cognac some time between 1600 and 1640. It wasn't until 1755 however that the Maison Gautier received the official licensing permission from Louis XV and started producing cognac under the name Gautier Cognac. The 250-year-old history is one of the most ancient ones in cognac production. Until this day, the cognac house remains in its original location, a former water mill in Aigre. Initially, the location was chosen because of the water power running the machinery.



        Over time, it became clear that the humidity and temperature that are created by the water, which gives this cognac such a characteristic taste. Similar to HINE Cognac, who age a selection of casks by the seaside in England, Gautier's products have a special taste to them. Charles Gautier's grandson Louis built a strong foundation for the family business in Cognac, focusing on trade and distribution. For 10 generations to come, the cognac house was passed on from father to son, preserving the family tradition and the secrets of distillation, aging and blending. Gautier has always produced a relatively small amount of cognac, concentrating mainly on quality and expertise. It is a product aimed at demanding palates and cognac connoisseurs.
