Palate: A burst of white pepper is tamed somewhat by vanilla, dried fruits and caramel. The apricot from the nose reappears towards the finish.

Description

Godet Antarctica Icy White Cognac: Celebrating a Continent

Made from exclusively from Folle Blanche grapes, the Godet Antarctica Icy White Cognac is comprised of eaux-de-vie aged for over seven years in the oldest casks on the Godet estate. The crystal clear appearance of the Cognac has been achieved by using 100-year-old casks that have lost all their tannins, leaving virtually no color in the spirit, but instead allowing it to simply develop sweet caramel notes and ripe fruit flavors. The combination of old casks and Folle Blanche eaux-de-vie is simply outstanding, and the result is a spirit unlike anything else.

This release has been created to celebrate Jean Jacques Godet’s travels in 2008, when he embarked on a sailing trip to Antarctica accompanied by ten crew members. They landed on the Antarctic mainland 70° south of the equator, the furthest a small yacht has ever been able to dock on the inhospitable continent. A world record was broken. In honor of this accomplishment, the House of Godet was inspired to craft a unique Cognac reflecting the purity and beauty of Antarctica.

Founded in 1782, Godet Cognac ranges amongst the oldest Cognac houses. The Godet family has been based in the seaside town and former trading hub La Rochelle for 400 years and since the very beginnings of Cognac production, they have played an important role in perfecting this culture. Cognac Godet has been in the hands of the same family for an astonishing 15 generations, who have placed tradition and excellence at the heart of their business. Godet is also one of the few Cognac producers who focus on cultivating and using the Folle Blanche grape variety, the original Cognac grape.

The Godet family's expertise in wine-making results in outstanding wine and Champagne as well as Cognac - an excellent standing for a family-run company. The business is headed by Godet president Jean-Jacques Godet, assisted by his three sons Jean Eduard, Maxime and Cyril.

Presentation of the Bottle

Of course, the packaging is as modern and unusual as the spirit it contains. Presented in a square, clear glass bottle with a black cap and simple lettering on the front, the color (or lack thereof!) of the liquid inside is allowed to become the unlikely star of the show. Reminiscent of a high-end cologne, this is a bottle that will stand out in any Cognac collection and is sure to be a conversation starter.

How to Enjoy

This young eau-de-vie is perfect to enjoy with a mixer, on the rocks or ice-cold from the freezer. We particularly love using it in a Lazy Dog:

  • 50ml Godet Antarctica Icy White Cognac
  • 20ml Lime juice
  • 15ml Triple sec
  • 2 dashes Grapefruit bitters

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake hard for 30 seconds. Double strain into a chilled coupette or martini glass and garnish with a thin twist of pink grapefruit peel.

À propos de Godet Cognac

La maison des Godet est gérée par la famille depuis 14 générations. Elle est l'exemple parfait d'une maison de cognac qui croit profondément à la tradition de cet alcool et à ses origines. En même temps, Godet parvient àévoluer avec les temps modernes, ayant récemment créé un cognac à partir d'un cépage presque éteint dans l'industrie du cognac : Folle Blache. Ce cognac s'appelle "Antarctique Godet" et a été inspiré par un voyage en bateau de 2 mois au Pôle Sud.
