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 60 proof, and corked.

Beside their regular range of flavored vodka, Grey Goose also produces Grey Goose Essences ― a threesome of vodkas, infused with real fruit and botanicals that contain no carbs and sugar. "The freshest ingredients were meticulously searched for and a unique distillation process is used for each fruit and each botanical to ensure we captured the purest flavor in every bottle," says Thibault. The Watermelon & Basil expression is crafted with juicy cold-pressed watermelon, garden-picked peppery basil, and their winter wheat vodka. Bottled at 60 proof, it's a rich, juicy, bright, and refreshing flavored vodka that contains 0 carbs and sugar.
