Vodka with a touch of cognac: Grey Goose VX

If all these years, your idea of glugging vodka was to have a party and swirling cognac signaled an elegant soiree then the Grey Goose VX just made things a whole lot interesting. Thanks to this groundbreaking new combination of fine French vodka with a touch of cognac, you now probably won’t have to choose between a grand time and grand elegance.

A pioneering new spirit inspired by the heritage of its creator and maître de Chai François Thibault, Grey Goose VX (Vodka Exceptionnelle), will make its foray into the US market next month. “I am inspired by both the authentic and the innovative – drawing from the best of the past to create something new and meaningful. This is how GREY GOOSE VX came to be”, said Thibault.

What to expect? An exceptional new taste experience to luxury spirit connoisseurs! Or in simpler words, a drink that delivers the refinement of two super spirits at once.

Crafted with grapes from the Grande Champagne region including a rare harvest from the Grey Goose brand home – Le Logis, and aged in hand selected old cask barrels made of Limousin oak for up to two years, Grey Goose VX is best enjoyed on the rocks in a fine snifter glass, or simply served chilled and neat to best appreciate its rich and aromatic character.
