About GREY GOOSE(R)
GREY GOOSE vodka, the world's favourite luxury vodka, is created with one
goal - to be the world's best tasting vodka. Made in Cognac, France, home to
the world's most respected experts in spirits making, GREY GOOSE vodka
benefits from the region's rich history of creating luxury foods, wines and
spirits. The maître de chai (cellar master) for GREY GOOSE vodka ensures that
every element of its production is of the highest quality. He selects 100% of
the finest French wheat, the same wheat used to create delicious French
pastries, and employs an exclusive five-step distillation process to
concentrate its exceptional flavour. Pure spring water naturally filtered
through Champagne limestone is then blended with the spirit. Only when the
spirit has reached its optimal taste is the maître de chai truly satisfied.
GREY GOOSE vodka is lush and smooth, buttery and rounded and melts in the
mouth with a long-lasting, satisfying finish.
