Godet Bottle Catalog (last updated: June 18, 2020)

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

Introduction

Godet was officially registrated in 1782 by Gédéon Godet, but his ancestors were already distilling in the 16th century. It was Bonaventura Godet who  immigrated from Holland to Charente as a merchant in the salt business first and in wines and brandewijn (brandy) later. This was the era when distilling wine started and he has been among the first traders in a time it was not even called cognac.
Today the firm is still headed by Godet descendants, the 15th generation already. Jean Godet was enobled in 1699 en he choose ´trois godets de sable´for his coat of arms, which means three buckets of sand. It is still used on their labels, next to another emblem with two lions on it.
 

Godet is often called Godet Frères en the abbreviation GF can also be found, usually on the shoulder.
