Vodka Knowledge

  • Whether vodka goes bad or expires will depend on a variety of factors, including proper storage. Most alcohol will remain drinkable indefinitely if it is unopened. It’s also unlikely that opened alcohol will “go bad” or be unsafe to drink as its high alcohol content protects it from germs. That said, its taste can definitely be altered. Light, temperature and air can change the way vodka tastes. Keep vodka in a cool, dark place to help preserve its flavor for as long as possible. To go a step further, we recommend storing GREY GOOSE® in the fridge to keep it beautifully refrigerated, ready to mix and perfectly preserved. Flavored vodkas have a shorter shelf life due to the added flavors. It’s best to enjoy these within 90 days of opening. If you notice a strange smell to your vodka, you don’t want to not drink it. If in doubt, throw it out.

  • Vodka is one of the most popular spirits in the world, and for good reason. Its delicate taste makes it a wonderful base for a wide variety of cocktails, from fruity Cosmopolitans to more bittersweet Espresso Martini Cocktails to spicy and savory Bloody Marys. It’s especially popular in the classic, spirit-forward Vodka Martini Cocktail. We also believe premium vodka by itself has a smooth, nuanced taste that’s uniquely palate pleasing.

  • You may have heard a rumor that the Kirkland Signature™ brand vodka sold at Costco is actually GREY GOOSE® Vodka, just in different packaging. We can definitively put this myth to rest. This viral claim is completely false, and GREY GOOSE® Vodka does not produce nor privately label Kirkland vodka.

    While both vodkas may use water from France’s Cognac region, the origin of the wheat in the Kirkland brand is undisclosed. GREY GOOSE® Vodka is only made from two ingredients: water from our own well in Gensac-la-Pallue and the finest French wheat. Every part of the production process is done in France.

    Furthermore, the Kirkland brand states that their product is distilled five times. GREY GOOSE® Vodka is distilled only once to preserve the naturally tasteful qualities of our signature winter wheat.

  • A vodka spritz or vodka spritzer is a simple cocktail containing vodka, soda water (or something else bubbly) and fruit juice, typically served over ice. They can be a nice lower ABV option. For some of our favorite vodka spritz recipes, check out the Lemon & Ginger Spritz, Sparkler Spritz or Surf Spritzer.

  • 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 flavors of Strawberry & Lemongrass, Watermelon & Basil and White Peach & Rosemary. These flavors are a far cry from gin.

  • The origins of the word “cocktail” are varied and highly debated. One theory posits that long ago, English sailors enjoyed mixed drinks in a Mexican tavern that contained a sort of stirrer made from a plant called cola de gallo, which means “cock’s tail” in English. They then brought that name back to England, which later made its way to America. 

    Others say the word originated in America, where in New Orleans they served a mixed drink in a French egg cup called a coquetier, which was later pronounced by English speakers as “cocktail.”

    New York also lays claim to the origin story. There’s the theory that bartenders used to pour the leftovers of liquors into a barrel, where people could pour a cheap drink from the spigot, which is also known as a cock. So they drank the mixed dregs of alcohol cobbled together by the tail end of a cock.

    No matter the origin of the word, one thing we can all agree on is cocktails sure are delicious. Browse all of our cocktail recipes to find one you’ll love.

  • Vodka does freeze, you just may never see it happen. Take this at-home experiment, for example. You may have put vodka in the freezer and noticed something—it doesn’t freeze, no matter how long you leave it in there. That’s because its freezing point is much lower than that of water. Because vodka contains 40% alcohol, it won’t freeze over until around -10 degrees Fahrenheit, much lower than your typical freezer, which is around 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Vodka, like most straight spirits, has sufficient alcohol to make it very shelf stable. But keep in mind that extended exposure to high temperatures or sunlight can impact taste, and you should always make sure to seal opened bottles properly after use. To keep your bottle at its best, we recommend storing GREY GOOSE® Vodka in a cool, dark place.
