Grey Goose is a brand of vodka produced in France. It was created in the 1990s by Sidney Frank, who sold it in 2004 to Bacardi. The Maître de Chais for Grey Goose is François Thibault, who developed the original recipe for the vodka in Cognac, France.
Grey Goose Le Citron is a lemon-flavored vodka.
In crafting GREY GOOSE® Le Citron Flavored Vodka, Cellar Master François Thibault began with the finest lemons, including those grown in the world-renowned Menton region of France. Menton lemons are larger and thicker skinned with a milder and less acidic flavor than their western counterparts, resulting in a superior lemon-flavored vodka. The thicker peels yield higher levels of essential oil, making Menton lemons the favorite of respected French chefs. The lemons are concentrated into a complex citrus oil extract to preserve their bright flavors, then expertly blended with vodka of unparalleled quality, GREY GOOSE®.
