Gourmet Secrets: Meet the cognac connoisseurs
Three young men, of the Godet family that owns a boutique cognac brand, carry on a family business worth talking about
Cognac has always represented luxury and is the most sought after, after dinner drink. While in France a few months ago, I was invited to Poitiers and La Rochelle to meet the Godet family who own a boutique cognac brand, which is still family run. This is unusual in the world of brandy and cognac, most of which has been taken over by the big boys of alcohol - Courvosier, Remy Martin, Hennessey and Martel.
