Grey Goose – Vodka Review

20 January 2013 4 Comments

Grey Goose BottleA Vodka review on Cognac Fans? What happend? Well… The origins of GREY GOOSE vodka lie in the Cognac region of France. For centuries the most respected experts in spirits distillation have practiced their craft in the region. Also, GREY GOOSE is named after the geese that have made Cognac their home and are celebrated in the region. The geese are a familiar sight in the center of Cognac where a flock regularly drinks from the fountain in front of the Hôtel de Ville.

Grey Goose vodka is produced and bottled in France. It is made from first class golden fine French winter wheat from the Picardy region of France and spring water from Gensac springs (about 150km from Cognac’s city centre). Then it is distilled in five steps in a column still, the high proof spirit is then blended with spring water that has been filtered through Grande Champagne limestone!

 

Just like with Cognac, GREY GOOSE vodka goes on a daily basis through more than 500 quality control checks including—most importantly—the final taste test. The Maître de Chai and his panel of tasting experts personally sample and approve every batch of GREY GOOSE before it is bottled.

Grey Goose Cork Bottle

The use of corks instead of simple screw-caps is very remarkable within the Vodka industry, these classy premium touches are referring to the centuries-old spirit making tradition of the Cognac region.

For me, Grey Goose is quite easily the nicest vodka I have tried, lovely and smooth with a slightly sweeter taste. However my girlfriend finds this Grey Goose a little much too bitter in taste. Grey Goose is best served from the freezer.

The tasting notes of Grey Goose Vodka are:

The nose: clean and fresh with buttered popcorn and white pepper and a particularly soft alcohol aroma.
The taste: silky smooth mouth-feel  whilst the delicate flavors take a little more searching. Some bitterness…. Subtle anise taste that sits alongside a touch of white pepper, and again the buttered popcorn from the nose.  This is a nice clean vodka that whilst not as ‘neutral’ tasting as some, is nonetheless reserved in its character…
The after-taste: slight after-taste of minerals.
The origin: Cognac region of France.
The price: $30 – $60 per liter.
