The history of the Grey Goose distillery is driven by a passion for their product. Everything is 100% traceable starting with the crops used, the cork manufacturer, harvest, milling, distillation, and then bottling. Each and every step is done in France, the gastronomy capital of the world. During distillation the traditions of François Thibault (the Maitre de Chai meaning cellar master) is followed step by step since it is he who developed the original recipe for Grey Goose back in 1997. Raised in Cognac and hailing from a winemaking family, Thibault went on to become an oenologist and worked at cognac house H. Mounier. It was here he met American businessman Sidney Frank, the man who was responsible for introducing Jägermeister to the world. At this time the Vodka industry was dominated by Eastern Europe and Russia so Frank had a vision wanting to create something exciting yet a bit different then what was already out there. He partnered up with Thibault that's EXACTLY what they did!! Thibault created a recipe using only two ingredients and sourcing them locally; single-origin Picardie winter wheat and natural Gensac-La-Pallue spring water which naturally filters itself through the limestone in the spring. Currently some of the farmers they are sourcing the wheat from are still family owned having the same families working the land going back 11 generations. Grey Goose L'Orange uses the finest Floridian oranges to craft Thibault's recipe by taking the fresh fruit and mixing it with the wheat spirit then distilling it. The extensive distilling process is said to eliminate all traces of gluten and Grey Goose was recently granted approval by the TBB to categorize the vodka as gluten-free however it is advised that those with Celiac use their own judgment and speak with their doctor prior to partaking in a Grey Goose cocktail. A fresh and fruity nose of citrus zest and orange blossom leads into a palate of vibrant ripe oranges. Smooth throughout thanks to the winter wheat and crisp thanks to the limestone-filtered spring water, it finishes long and lingering with warm orange zest and crisp, clean minerality. Each liter is crafted with and contains the natural essence of just around 2 ¼lbs of oranges which are harvested year round. Crisp and refreshing enjoy in a cocktail of your choice or visit greygoose.com for new cocktail recipes to try!!
