Godet VSOP Original Cognac: a Mature Blend, Made For Sipping
Aged for over a decade - much longer than required for this age category - the Godet VSOP Original Cognac is intended to show the influence of oak on spirit. Composed of eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois as well as Grande and Petite Champagne, this expression blends some of the finest regions of Cognac seamlessly, all aged by the west coat of France. Thanks to its extended maturation by the sea, the fruity spirit has been mellowed and complemented by rich tannins and notes of dried fruit.
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.

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.
