To create GREY GOOSE vodka, François Thibault maintains an unrivalled level of craftsmanship, using only the very finest ingredients. Its signature smoothness and distinct character are the result of an extraordinary passion for spirit making and an unparalleled commitment to the highest possible quality. Each batch of Grey Goose® vodka begins with soft winter wheat grown on farms in and around the fertile Picardy region of northern France. GREY GOOSE Maître de Chai François Thibault insists on using only the highest-grade wheat, the same wheat used in the finest French breads and pastries. After the wheat grain is fermented and distilled into a high-proof spirit, it travels south to Gensac-La-Pallue, in the Cognac, Arrondissement(Region), France, where it is blended with the remarkably pristine spring water found there.
François Thibault created La Poire specifically to reflect the taste and freshness of an Anjou pear; a classic flavour of French cuisine. The result is a flavoured vodka alive with the aromas of fresh pears and a crisp, smooth taste. The complex pear flavours found in GREY GOOSE La Poire stem from a rich medley of fresh pears selected by the Maître de Chai; creating a taste that features the mellow flavours and subtle sweetness of the Anjou Pear. Like the soft winter wheat used to make GREY GOOSE vodka, the Anjou Pear is cultivated in France and is an essential ingredient in classic French pastries and desserts like the tarte aux poires.
