Brandy - Cognac

We have been inundated with requests to list some brandy (or more specifically, cognac) on our website. So here are seven cognacs of varying standard and price from the Godet family.

We already stock a large collection of Brandy in our Huddersfield shop, largely to match with our cigar offering, but it is online that people seem keen to buy brandy – so here you go!

In the late 1700’s, and already in the 7th generation of brandy production, the Godet family were the first to offer cognac in branded bottles through the registered trading name of Godet. Now in its 15th generation, the family has survived two World Wars, the phylloxera crisis (which wiped out grapes) and even US prohibition, where they supplied Al Capone with brandy from a distillery in Canada!

We have added the VS Cognac, VSOP Cognac and two XO Cognacs. But also, for those looking for something a little different, we have added the pure ice Antartica Cognac and the “Pearadise” pear infused Cognac.

Possibly the most interesting, however, is the Folle Blanche, which is named after the original grapes used to create brandy, a grape which is almost extinct. This “epicure” is the blend of several Folle Blanche vintages.

Head on over to our brandy section now.
