GREY GOOSE® Process & Products

Elevating Vodka to New Heights

From crop to cork, the making of GREY GOOSE® Vodka is a process of craft, which begins with Picardie wheat and never once steps outside of France. Made from the best of the natural world, GREY GOOSE® Vodka requires only a single distillation, allowing the character of its premium ingredients to shine through. The result is quintessential vodka — meticulously crafted, characteristically smooth and remarkably tasteful.

Only Two Ingredients

It all starts with the finest ingredients — and only two of them. We use the best ingredients in distinctive regions and terroirs of France, the gastronomic capital of the world.

Soft Winter Wheat

We use the same single-origin, 100% GMO-free wheat that is used in the most exquisite French pastries. It’s grown under perfect conditions in Picardie, a region known as “the breadbasket of France'' for its fields of high-quality wheat. In France, wheat is even classified and protected by law, and we only use the highest standard wheat, which is called blé panifiable superieur. In Picardie, a natural balance between the soil and the climate makes it the perfect location for growing soft winter wheat. Ever since we began production, we have worked with the same three farming co-operatives who are dedicated to managing the terroir.

Natural Spring Water

We use pure limestone-filtered spring water from our own well in Gensac-la-Pallue, collected fresh at the source from a natural aquifer 500 feet beneath our blending facility in the Cognac region. Since the 17th century, the finest spirits in France have been made in Cognac because of the purity of the water. Like the wheat, the spring water is protected by the French government. It’s subject to a European Union Conservation Order protecting the environment that contributes to the unique purity of the water.

How We Make GREY GOOSE® Vodka

Our process is 100% traceable from our farmer partnerships, through milling, mashing, fermentation, distillation, blending with spring water and final bottling.
