From the brand
When Grey Goose was created in 1997 by François Thibault, the Grey Goose Maître de Chai (cellar master), it broke the rules of where and how vodka was supposed to be made. Grey Goose Vodka is crafted from the finest French wheat, with water naturally filtered through Champagne limestone, and carefully distilled according to the uncompromising traditions of France's Cognac region. Each batch is made to the Thibault’s exacting standards, ensuring its distinct freshness, clarity and unparalleled smoothness. Grey Goose Vodka is a celebration of extraordinary character, from its creation through to the last sip of the perfect Martini.
