The story begins in the 17th century when the GAUTIER family were forest owners near the Tronçais forest in France. More than a skill, our ancestors developed a close relationship to oak, captured in the family's motto "DU GALT MER SUI" which means "I am the Lord of the Forest" in ancient French. This particular expertise is one of the key elements in mastering the long maturation process of our Cognac.
In 1644, Charles GAUTIER married Jacquette Brochet, a wine-maker's daughter. From 1700, their grandson, Louis GAUTIER, further expanded the Cognac activity.
In 1755, the family obtained a Royal Warrant to produce Cognac and a founding charter signed by the King Louis XV.
