Gautier Bottle Catalogue (last updated: Aug 31, 2021)

215 bottles, but still not complete (only half bottles and up).

Introduction

For starters it is important to bear in mind that there are several Gautier brands that have existed, of which three are particularly important to distinguish. To learn how to tell which is which, click here. This catalog page is about Gautier SA, formerly nown as Gautier Frères & Co.
Gautier was established in 1775 in Aigre and was around 1900 one of the bigger cognac firms and a very prominent company.
Up till 2000 they used the three dear heads on a shield for there logo. Then they changed the logo to the water mill that was built over the river Osme. The river provided a humid environment for their cognacs.

 
They are now part of Marie Brizard and are called Maison Gautier.
