Grey Goose’s ingredients are column-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 calcium-rich Gensac-La-Pallue spring water is drawn from 150 meters below the blending facility in Cognac. The spirit is filtered through a copper filtration system in order to infuse it with additional flavor. The distillate is sent to a plant in Cognac, France, dedicated to the sole purpose of bottling Grey Goose. The resultant spirit is cut with spring water, bottled at 60 proof, and corked.
Beside their regular range of flavored vodka, Grey Goose also produces Grey Goose Essences ― a threesome of vodkas, infused with real fruit and botanicals that contain no carbs and sugar. "The freshest ingredients were meticulously searched for and a unique distillation process is used for each fruit and each botanical to ensure we captured the purest flavor in every bottle," says Thibault. The Watermelon & Basil expression is crafted with juicy cold-pressed watermelon, garden-picked peppery basil, and their winter wheat vodka. Bottled at 60 proof, it's a rich, juicy, bright, and refreshing flavored vodka that contains 0 carbs and sugar.
