François Thibault, a Maître de Chai (cellar master), had a vision for a vodka with taste. He believed that by following the French epicurean tradition of using only the finest ingredients, and crafting it in the heart of Cognac, he could revolutionise vodka.
Where traditional methods of distillation tended to strip vodka of its flavour, François designed a unique production process that would bring out the naturally superior characteristics of its ingredients. By combining soft winter wheat from Picardie with Gensac spring water, naturally filtered through Champagne limestone, he created Grey Goose, a vodka of unprecedented taste and character.
Defying those who said it could not be done, François had the determination to bring his vision to reality and, to this day, each batch of Grey Goose is made to his own exacting standards. This extraordinary dedication ensures that every aspect of the creation of Grey Goose remains true to this original vision; to create the World’s Best Tasting Vodka.
