"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. "I've carefully selected only the most precious and exquisite cognac, and the intricate marriage of this with Grey Goose Vodka results in a rich and complex nose, with hints of white fruit blossom, plum, apricot, light citrus and wild honey, followed by a long, lingering finish. This is a very special liquid - which can only produced in limited quantities to uphold its superior character. It is truly unique and luxurious - a celebration of French craftsmanship."
Grey Goose VX is created 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 delivers a new luxury experience for the spirits connoisseur, seamlessly marrying the distinct character of Grey Goose Vodka and fine cognac", said Lyle Tick, VP Managing Director, Grey Goose Vodka, "It's a celebration of the new and the old, of authenticity and innovation, and the result is something very special."
Grey Goose VX is presented in a decanter made from 'extra flint' glass - a glass known for its exceptional quality. Taking inspiration from the finest French spirit decanters, the impressive Grey Goose VX bottle boasts an elegant shape with exquisite detailing, and is crowned with a luxurious "collectible" bottle stopper.
