However Jean-Jacques Godet, who had remained as CEO was able to buy the House of Godet back from The Grand Metropolitan Group in 1995. Today the 14th and 15th generations of the Godet family are still involved in managing the House of Godet and the Master Blender is Jean Edouard Godet. Cognac Godet are renowned for producing a range of both modern and traditional Cognacs, from a range of terroirs, with a great emphasis on hand-crafting, limited production and a long maturation period.
Godet Cognac No 1 Gentleman Spirit is a lighter style which is aged in older, 15 year old barrels so the woody / rancio notes do not overpower the floral and fruity character. Bottled at a slightly higher than normal 42.5% ABV. Aged 3 years in oak casks. No sugar or caramel added.
