Grey Goose Vodka is made in the town of Gensac-la-Pallue located in the Cognac region of western France. It is distilled in small batches from 100% French wheat cultivated in the rich, fertile soil of Beauce. After the vodka leaves the alembic still, the maître de chai—cellar master—adds artesian spring water to reduce its alcohol content to 40% by volume. The pristine, limestone-filtered water is drawn from the Massif Central Mountains in the Champagne region of Provence. With its wheat coming from the northwest part of the country and the all-important water from the south, Grey Goose is truly a citizen of France.
The brand's meteoric success pays tribute to its crowd-pleasing personality. Grey Goose has a lustrous appearance, a supple, medium-weight body and a delicate bouquet of buttery, pastry-like aromas. It quickly fills the mouth with a warm array of nutty, semisweet flavors before fading into a citrus and spice finish.
