Grey Goose® FAQ
The answer to this question is a little complicated. Gin can be classified as a botanically infused vodka. Vodka is called the “conception spirit” as it can be seen as the base from which other spirits are derived. So if you add traditional gin botanicals, like juniper, you can make gin from vodka.
But not all botanically infused vodkas are gin. Take our GREY GOOSE® Essences, for example. Here we take vodka and infuse it with the real fruit and botanical essences in flavours of Strawberry & Lemongrass, Watermelon & Basil and White Peach & Rosemary. These flavours are a far cry from gin.
