The French prefer the finer things. Grey Goose wasn't about to let them down when it launched in 1996. It's made from wheat typically reserved for the finest breads and pastries. That should tell you all you need to know about their ingredients. It's distilled once in a continuous-column process to preserve the essence of the wheat. The quality of each batch of Grey Goose Vodkas is checked 550 times a day. Which sounds like it could turn into a wild party at the office. But they appear to be running a successful business, so things must be under control. When in doubt, go with the award-winning original, but there are plenty of Grey Goose flavors to try as well.
