Godet Extra Cognac 70cl: A Story of Resilience 

Godet Extra Cognac tells a tale of resilience, of survival, strength, and success. In 1945, 12th and 13th generation Godets Jacques and Jean were coming to terms with the end of World War II and the devastation it had caused to their cellars and vineyards. They were determined to replenish their stocks and continue the family tradition, leaving a legacy for generations to come.

This is the inspiration behind Godet Extra Cognac, an "Hors d'Age" blend using eaux-de-vie harvested during this post-war period of rebirth. Like a phoenix from the ashes, Godet managed to maintain their position as a quality Cognac producer, appreciated by Cognac connoisseurs for over 500 years.

Now run by the 15th generation of a Cognac dynasty; Jean Edouard, Maxime, and Cyril Godet have taken the heritage, history, and craftsmanship of their ancestors before them and ran with it, elevating the estate by creating a legendary and luxurious brand with 500 years of savoir-faire under their belt. The Extra Cognac is a fitting tribute to the family's post-war past, a true gem in their collection.

Master blender (and 15th generation Godet) Jean-Edouard isn't afraid to incorporate his heritage and history into his work, producing some exquisite Cognacs with his ancestors acting as a muse for his creations.

This particular Extra Cognac is not only superb to sip, with its sensual bouquet of dried flowers and a hint of spice, but equally a masterpiece to look at. Its extraordinary stand proudly frames this work of art, an exciting feast for the senses. 

What makes Godet stand out on the Cognac market is their La Rochelle location, the particularly salty and humid environment works magic on the eaux-de-vie during the aging process, and this particular Hors d'Age Cognac has been maturing for decades in the estate's most ancient cellars.

Thanks to this climate, the Godet Extra Cognac truly makes for a unique and stand-out sensory exploration of Cognac at its best.

How to Enjoy:

This Extra aged Cognac is ideally drunk neat as it is "Hors d'Age", enjoy it in a traditional snifter or tulip glass with family or friends. To enjoy the Cognac's aromas further, hand warm your glass before taking that very first sublime sip.

For those Cognac connoisseurs who appreciate fine Extra's like this, this very rare find should be sipped slowly, savoring every single aroma and flavor that develops on to palate and nose.

Presentation of the Bottle:

This decanter is a prime example of why Godet's are experts in their craft and why they are still relevant after 500 years of Cognac production. A true masterpiece, the bottles unique shape make it a wonderful display piece to share and enjoy with friends.

Finished in rose gold, it comes with an exquisite stand to be proudly placed in your living room, dining room or home bar.

The unique shell-like stopper is an elegant reminder of the La Rochelle location of Godet's estate, and the extraordinary element added by the Atlantic climate and humid sea environment. 

About Godet Cognac

The house of Godet has been run by the family for 14 generations. It is a perfect example of a cognac house that deeply believes in the tradition of this spirit and its origins. At the same time, Godet manages to move with modern times, having recently created a cognac from a grape that is almost extinct in the cognac industry: Folle Blache. This cognac is called "Antarctica Godet" and was inspired by a 2-month sailing trip to the South Pole.
