One of our readers has this Rouyer Guillet 1865 Vintage Cognac at home in Fleming Island, Florida, USA. The Reader writes “This bottle of cognac belonged to my mother and father in law before they passed away. Apparently they bought it before they were married in 1958. It’s been in the kitchen cupboard for 40+ years! The family has now inherited it, and would like to know its value, and to sell it if possible.”
