VS, VSOP and XO are The Great Classics in the world of Cognac, fruity and floral notes are the signature of our eaux-de-vies. Slowly maturing in barrels, the masculine woody character blends with floral and sweet-berry aromas; sensual and ever so slightly elusive, this is the Godet style.
These three classic Cognacs are the direct descendants of the ‘brand-wijn’, exported by Bonaventure Godet on his trading vessel in the 16th Century.
From the youngest, the VS, to the oldest, the XO, they are the stages of a sensory journey.
"Very Special" is the youngest cognac in our range. A blend of several crus, it is double distilled and aged in French oak casks.
Lively and fruity, it reveals pear and leather notes on the nose.
It is a direct descendant of La Rochelle ‘Brand-Wijn’ (Burnt-Wine), which was already shipped by Bonaventure Godet on his galleon in the 16th Century. This VS epitomises the inventive side of the first cognac distillers who literally burnt their wines to preserve its quality. They discovered that this eau-de-vie, once in oak barrel, greatly improved as time passed. These were the beginnings of the story of Cognac.
