One of the oldest cognac houses in France, Gautier have been producing their fine eaux de vies and cognacs for over 300 years.
Remaining in the family for 10 generations until recently,Gautier were granted the Royal Warrant in 1755 to produce Cognac for Louis XV. Maison Gautier was born and the winery was installed in the former watermill in Aigre.
The heirs of Maison Gautier succeeded each other in turn over 10 generations, developing the family business. Louis Gautier, son of the founder, naturally took over from his father and then left the business to his own son, who became the sole partner and owner of the company.On his death in 1783, his wife Marie André took over the reins until 1796, when their sons took control. The company was called “Gautier Mère et Fils”, becoming “Gautier Frères” in 1814.
The Cognac house was thus passed on from father to son, always preserving its traditional expertise while maintaining a dynamic approach, and always seeking perfection in terms of quality. Today, Maison Gautier is owned by the Belvedere Group, and continues to remain faithful to the production process that was put in place back in 1755.Read More
