A Detailed Explanation of the Two-City Process Behind the Creation of Grey Goose Vodka

In October 2014, Potluck Video travelled to Grey Goose in Cognac, France to get a detailed explanation of how they create their vodka, a process that starts in Picardy in the north of France and then makes its way south to Cognac to be finished.

The creation of Grey Goose Vodka begins with the finest soft winter wheat grown by three local farming cooperatives in the Picardy region of France. The wheat is sent to a dedicated mill and distillery where it is transformed into a high-proof spirit. This wheat spirit is perfectly blended with spring water from an exclusive well in Gensac-la-Pallue in the Cognac Arrondissement (region) where the water is naturally filtered through limestone.
