Country of Origin: France
Grey Goose Vodka, produced in France, is a premium vodka, born of an extraordinary passion for spirit-making. It is created using only the finest French ingredients – the highest-grade wheat and pristine limestone-filtered spring water. It is a spirit of uncommon brilliance, unrivaled craftsmanship and signature smoothness and is an excellent choice as a gift.
Grey Goose Vodka was created in the 1990s by Sidney Frank, who sold it in 2004 to Bacardi. The Maître de Chais for Grey Goose is François Thibault, who developed the original recipe for the vodka in Cognac, France. This extraordinary vodka is made from the best ingredients from France, soft winter wheat from in and around Picardy, and Gensac spring water located in the Cognac region.
The company selected France due to the country’s culinary history and to differentiate itself from other vodkas produced in Eastern Europe. The water used to produce the vodka came from natural springs in France filtered through Champagne limestone, and made with locally produced French wheat. The company also developed its distinctive smoked glass bottle featuring French geese in flight, and delivered its product in wooden crates similar to wine.
Grey Goose Vodka has an exquisite clear, fresh and elegantly aromatic taste. This is a premium vodka of unparalleled smoothness and exceptional taste, with subtle hints of almond and a long, satisfying finish.
