To create GREY GOOSE vodka, François Thibault maintains an unrivalled level of craftsmanship, using only the very finest ingredients. Its signature smoothness and distinct character are the result of an extraordinary passion for spirit making and an unparalleled commitment to the highest possible quality. Each batch of Grey Goose® vodka begins with soft winter wheat grown on farms in and around the fertile Picardy region of northern France. GREY GOOSE Maître de Chai François Thibault insists on using only the highest-grade wheat, the same wheat used in the finest French breads and pastries. After the wheat grain is fermented and distilled into a high-proof spirit, it travels south to Gensac-La-Pallue, in the Cognac, Arrondissement(Region), France, where it is blended with the remarkably pristine spring water found there. Denoting “vodka exceptionelle”, the VX has been developed by François Thibault, the creator of Grey Goose who began his career as a cellar master for wineries and cognac distilleries in the region. “From its inception, Grey Goose has always pioneered new and exciting territories. In creating Grey Goose VX, I wanted to capture the aromatic notes of a precious cognac, bringing its delicate essence of orchard fruits, plum, apricot and the mild flavours of wild honey to the remarkable character of Grey Goose vodka.”
The rich, subtle taste of Grey Goose VX is described as bringing a harmonious balance of white fruit blossom, honeysuckle and violet with hints of apricot and a long, lingering finish. The balance is described as subtle, harmonious and rich, yet delicate with a long, full finish.
