If you are a fan of premium sprits then you will love this.
Unfortunately it’s just for the US market but we have been told it’s an exclusive edition of GREY GOOSE inspired by the spirit making traditions of its creator and Maître de Chai François Thibault, VX is masterfully finished with a hint of precious Cognac, resulting in a discerning new spirit that delivers an exceptional new taste experience to luxury spirit connoisseurs.
Thibault has created a unique new expression of GREY GOOSE – one that draws from past tradition, and expertly marries a hint of precious Cognac with GREY GOOSE vodka to create something truly distinctive.
“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 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.
We are told it’s best enjoyed on the rocks in a fine snifter glass, or served chilled and neat to best appreciate its rich and aromatic character.
“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.”
The bottle is presented in an exquisite decanter made from ‘extra flint’ glass – a glass known for its exceptional quality. Taking inspiration from the finest French spirit decanters, the stunning Grey Goose VX bottle boasts an elegant shape with exquisite detailing, and is crowned with a luxurious “collectible” bottle stopper.
