Grey Goose Ducasse VodkaThis Grey Goose vodka is crafted using single-origin French wheat from Picardie and natural spring water from Gensac-la-Pallue. Grey Goose Ducasse is an assemblage of three different toasts of our wheat, expertly conceived by our Cellar Master, Fran§ois Thibault, and French chef, Alain Ducasse (producer).Grey Goose Interpreted by Ducasse is born out of a pioneering collaborative process between Grey Goose Cellar Master, Fran§ois Thibault and Michelin-starred chef, Alain Ducasse. Made with toasted French wheat. The single-origin soft winter wheat used to create Grey Goose vodka is toasted in three different batches (light, medium and dark) and then blended together to create Grey Goose Interpreted by Ducasse.Grey Goose Interpreted by Ducasse best enjoyed served in a tasting glass with 1-3 drops of chocolate bitters. Alternative glassware options are a cocktail glass or a rocks glass.Grey Goose, one of the most notorious luxury Vodka labels, is produced in France. Materialized by Sidney Frank, founder and CEO of the company who developed the idea in the summer of 1996 the French brand was sold to Bacardi in 2004. The original recipe for the vodka was developed by the Matre de Chai for Grey Goose, Fran§ois Thibault, in Cognac, France. Fran§ois Thibault, who seamlessly transitioned his skills from cognac to vodka production, oversaw the first vodka ever to be produced in the Matre de Chai tradition.The water used in production comes from the natural spring, Gensac-La-Pallue, in the Cognac region, filtered through Champagne limestone. Grey Goose is crafted with locally sourced soft winter wheat grown in Picardy (le grenier bl- 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 yields a more durable grain.Grey Gooses ingredients are 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 water used in the vodka comes from the Gensac-La-Pallue 150 meters below the blending facility in Cognac, which is lined with limestone, providing calcium-rich spring water. The vodka is also filtered through a copper filtration system in order to infuse the vodka with additional flavor. The distillate is sent to a plant in Cognac, France, dedicated to the sole purpose of bottling of Grey Goose. The resultant spirit is cut with spring water and bottled and corked.
