Grey Goose, one of the most notorious luxury vodka labels, is produced in France. The idea for a premium vodka for the US market was realized in 1997 by the late Sidney Frank, founder and CEO of Sidney Frank Importing CO. The French brand was sold to Bacardi in 2004. The original recipe for the vodka was developed by the Maître de Chai for Grey Goose, François Thibault, in Cognac, France. François Thibault, who seamlessly transitioned his skills from cognac to vodka production, oversaw the first vodka ever to be produced in the Maître de Chai tradition.

The water used in production comes from the natural spring, Gensac-la-Pallue, in the Cognac region, where it gets filtered through Champagne limestone. Grey Goose is crafted with locally sourced soft winter wheat grown in Picardy known as "the breadbasket of France", a wheat-growing region in France. The grain is sown in October and harvested in August. This wheat, classified as "superior bread-making wheat,” is the only grain used in Grey Goose. According to Thibault, soft wheat, as opposed to hard wheat, is better for distilling, the four additional months of growth in comparison to summer wheat yielding a more durable grain.

Grey Goose’s ingredients are column-distilled in a facility in the same region. Enzymes are used to break down the carbohydrates into fermentable sugars, and the fermentation takes place continuously over six cascading tanks. The wash is then distilled once into spirit using a five-step process. The calcium-rich Gensac-La-Pallue spring water is drawn from 150 meters below the blending facility in Cognac. The spirit is filtered through a copper filtration system in order to infuse it with additional flavor. The distillate is sent to a plant in Cognac, France, dedicated to the sole purpose of bottling Grey Goose. The resultant spirit is cut with spring water, bottled at 80 proof, and corked.

Grey Goose has several flavored expressions in their lineup, all of them crafted with their soft winter wheat vodka. Grey Goose Cherry Noir is made with the essence of ripe black cherries from the French Basque Country. It was launched in 2012 and is bottled at 80 proof ― higher than is common for cherry-flavored vodka. Vibrant, dark, and sweet, the expression is rich with cherry notes that work particularly well in various cocktails such as the Cherry Collins.
