Grey Goose VX - A Superior Cognac Vodka
Bacardi, one of the great drink giants is the name behind the mighty Grey Goose VX. This is an ultra-premium expression from Grey Goose Vodka, but this time, it’s got the added twist of having ‘precious drops of cognac’ combined.
It’s been created by Francois Thibault, who has used his experience as a cognac Maitre de Chai to design this new expression. He says of Grey Goose VX, “From its creation, Grey Goose has always pioneered into new and exciting territory. In creating Grey Goose VX, I wanted to capture the aromatic notes of a precious cognac, bringing its delicate essence of orchard fruits, plum, apricot and the mild flavours of wild honey to the remarkable character of Grey Goose vodka.”
Francois' passion for crafting extraordinary spirits began as a cellar master in Cognac and led him to create Grey Goose, a vodka built from the ground up, created through a process known as 'field to bottle' which allows for a celebrating when tasting the quality of it's ingredients.
Grey Goose was originally created by Sidney Frank Importing Co (SFIC). Sidney Frank founder/CEO of the company, developed the idea in the summer of 1996. The initial idea for Grey Goose was to develop a luxury vodka for the American marketplace, something Frank had been considering for a while when he came up with the name.
How to Drink Grey Goose VX
An innovative product from Grey Goose, VX (vodka exceptionelle) is a mixture of vodka and Grande Champagne Cognac – designed to be drunk neat, with or without ice.
Grey Goose VX is best enjoyed on the rocks in a snifter (Cognac) glass, so you can pick up on all the aromas and flavours. It has scents of white blossoms, plum, apricot, light citrus, and honey, with a lingering finish.
This new expression combines both the famous taste of Grey Goose vodka with cognac from the premier cru region of Grande Champagne.
Grey Goose VX - it's all about taste & presentation
Grey Goose VX is presented in a decanter made from what’s called ‘extra flint’ glass, with a frosted exterior.. It has a wave design to the front – a metaphor for flight, natural geometric design and optimism, according to Bacardi. The producers also say that the shape of the bottle has been inspired from other prestigious French decanters, but still retaining the contemporary feel of the original bottle of Grey Goose Vodka.
